Note from the Audiologist: "CaptionCall is currently my favorite captioning phone. Their customer service to my patients has been fantastic. I really appreciate how they take time to actually install the phone, make sure it is working, and make sure you know how to work it, instead of just mailing you the phone. Though there is a small delay during a phone call from when the words are said until the captioning appears , it is very impressive what they are able to do. I have received multiple thank yous from patients for recommending this product to them. This product has my stamp of approval." Kalob Parsons-Doctor of Audiology
