Similar to captioned television, CaptionCall uses advanced technology and a communications assistant to provide nearly instant written captions of what callers say on a large, easy-to-read screen. It works like a regular telephone – simply dial and answer calls as usual – speak and listen using a phone handset like always.  The captioning service is free. Captioning is provided by CaptionCall and paid through a fund administered by the Federal Communications Commission.
