Do you get dis­cour­aged when you hear your tele­phone ring? Do you avoid us­ing your phone be­cause hear­ing dif­fi­cul­ties make it hard to un­der­stand the per­son on the other end of the line? For many Amer­i­cans the tele­phone con­ver­sa­tion – once an part of ev­ery­day life – has be­come a thing of the past. Be­cause they can’t un­der­stand what is said to them on the phone, they’re of­ten cut off from friends, fam­ily, doc­tors and care­givers. Now, thanks to in­no­va­tive tech­nol­ogy there is finally a bet­ter way.

A sim­ple idea… made pos­si­ble with so­phis­ti­cated tech­nol­ogy.

If you have trou­ble un­der­stand­ing a call, cap­tioned tele­phone can change your life. Dur­ing a phone call the words spo­ken to you appear on the phone’s screen – sim­i­lar to closed cap­tion­ing on TV. So when you make or re­ceive a call, the words spo­ken to you are not only am­pli­fied by the phone, but scroll across the phone so you can lis­ten while read­ing ev­ery­thing that’s said to you. Each call is routed through a call cen­ter, where com­puter tech­nol­ogy – aided by a live rep­re­sen­ta­tive – gen­er­ates voice-to-text trans­la­tions.

The cap­tion­ing is real-time, ac­cu­rate and read­able. Your con­ver­sa­tion is pri­vate and the cap­tion­ing ser­vice doesn’t cost you a penny. In­ter­net Pro­to­col Cap­tioned Tele­phone Ser­vice (IP CTS) is reg­u­lated and funded by the Fed­eral Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Com­mis­sion (FCC) and is de­signed ex­clu­sively for in­di­vid­u­als with hear­ing loss. To learn more, visit www.fcc.gov. The Hamil­ton CapTel phone re­quires tele­phone ser­vice and high-speed In­ter­net ac­cess. WiFi Ca­pa­ble. Call­ers do not need spe­cial equip­ment or a cap­tioned tele­phone in or­der to speak with you.

Finally… a phone you can use again.

The Hamil­ton CapTel phone is also packed with fea­tures to help make phone calls eas­ier. The key­pad has large, easy to use but­tons.

You get adjustable vol­ume am­pli­fi­ca­tion along with the abil­ity to save cap­tions for re­view later. It even has an an­swer­ing ma­chine that pro­vides you with the cap­tions of each mes­sage.
