Sprint WebCapTel Captions Phone Calls for Deaf and Hard of Hearing

Submitted by Paula Rosenthal on March 25, 2009 – 10:41 pm25 Comments

CAPTIONED TELEPHONE SERVICE OVER THE WEB

AN INNOVATIVE SERVICE FOR INDIVIDUALS EXPERIENCING HEARING LOSS

Sprint recently launched a captioned telephone service that helps an estimated 28 million Americans with hearing loss to communicate comfortably on the telephone. Sprint WebCapTel® is a free, web-based service that allows a person who prefers to use their own voice, but has difficulty hearing over the telephone, to read word-for- word captions on a computer monitor or laptop.

Using the service is easy. Prior to making a call, the Sprint WebCapTel user will log onto www.sprintcaptel.com and enter the number they wish to call and the number they are calling from. This enables callers to speak for themselves during the telephone conversation, while reading typed captions of what the other party is saying. Captions appear virtually at the same time as the person speaks, allowing participants to enjoy the natural flow of an interactive telephone conversation.

Callers can listen to what is said on any telephone, including cordless phones, wireless phones, or landline phones – as long as they have a telephone line and access to the internet. Callers are not charged for long distance calls made through the service however, may be charged for the actual use of minutes by their cell phone provider.

While the service is free, users must register to use the service. Users may sign up by simply going to the Sprint WebCapTel registration page, enter the required information and select a username and password. Security measures are in place to prevent unauthorized users from signing up. Sprint WebCapTel users will be e-mailed a link to verify their email is valid, and then they will be able to make and receive calls using Sprint WebCapTel!  For more information about Sprint WebCapTel, go to  www.sprintcaptel.com or sprintrelay.com/webcaptel.htm.

Editor’s Note: This is NOT a paid endorsement of Sprint WebCapTel. Since the CapTel service is free, this is a courtesy promotion. All paid endorsements will be noted as such.
