CAPTIONED TELEPHONE SERVICE

  • Are you worried that you won’t understand the person calling you?
     
  • Do you look around to see if someone else can answer the phone?

 

Well, worry no more!

 

Wyoming Captioned Telephone Service known as CapTel allows you to LISTEN and READ captions of everything during your phone conversations, just like real-time captions on TV.  It is great for people with severe hearing loss who don't benefit from an amplified phone.

SPRINT CAPTEL: FEDERAL LAW PROHIBITS ANYONE BUT REGISTERED USERS WITH HEARING LOSS FROM USING INTERNET PROTOCOL (IP) CAPTIONED TELEPHONES WITH THE CAPTIONS TURNED ON. IP Captioned Telephone Service may use a live operator. The operator generates captions of what the other party to the call says. These captions are then sent to your phone. There is a cost for each minute of captions generated, paid from a federally administered fund. No cost is passed on to the CapTel user for using the service. See sprintcaptel.com for details.
