Smart Phone App Captions Cell Phone Calls

I love my CapTel IPhone App. Now there is also an Andriod App. If you are having trouble hearing on your cell phone, this is the App for you. It allows you to use your own voice, and the Calling Agents (CA's) type to you what the person on the other end of the call is saying, along with all the background noise so you have most of the same information a hearing person has.

The extra features are wonderful. You can adjust the font size to your personal preference, as well as the color of the font and the background color. I like the yellow background with the black font.

You can store your list of contact numbers. The new number feature is fabulous. You can choose to have the new "call me #" and your callers no longer have to dial into the center, then dial up your  number from there. Now, they have one simple number by which to call you. No more confusion or long explanations how to dial you up.

Another fabulous feature, and this is my favorite, the app saves everything that the other person has said. You can go back and review the conversation if you need to copy that address or phone number or any other information you may need. Just bring up that conversation, highlight it, copy and paste to your notes or email the copy to yourself.

It also has a "send to printer" feature. You can print out that important information or those right from your phone. It does it all for you.

Did I mention it is FREE? Try it and see how it works for you.

Now you can make calls from anywhere.


  1. wish I could get this for Windows phone.

  2. Hello, Dale,

    Perhaps you could contact Hamilton and ask them to develop the app for the Windows phone. I'm sure it's just a matter of time until one or something similar is available. Technology is moving at a fast rate these days.

    Thanks for dropping by my blog!

  3. Hello, John,
    YES!! It was the first app compatible with the iPhone. I LOVE it and highly recommend it.

  4. Thanks for your response... :)
