How ClearCaptions works
ClearCaptions enables the near real-time transcription of a spoken phone conversation into text captions. Through use of the service, a caller’s words are converted into text for easy reading and reference. The service is free, made possible by federal funding in conjunction with Title IV of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), available for a variety of technology platforms including personal computers, mobile devices and the company’s own specially-designed captioning telephones.
“For the millions of people who have hearing loss that makes it difficult to use a telephone, captioning enables them to enjoy everyday phone conversations with confidence and ease,” says Corrine Perritano,
ClearCaptions’ Chief Operating Officer. “Using the phone should be an enjoyable experience, free of stress or frustration. ClearCaptions call captioning, for the home phones as well as for mobile phones, lets people enjoy the reassurance of captioned calls, wherever they go, so they’ll never miss a word.”
