From a Press Release
Hamilton Relay officially announced on October 27, 2008 the availability of Hamilton Mobile CapTel. This is the first, single-phone mobile captioned telephone service designed specifically for individuals who have difficulty hearing on the phone. Similar to the closed captioning provided on most television programs, Hamilton Mobile CapTel allows users to place and receive calls – while reading word-for-word captions – on a single device.
Hamilton Mobile CapTel is a free service that can be used anywhere on a single, mobile telephone that is capable of supporting both voice and data simultaneously through a 3G or Wi-Fi connection. “Freedom is what Hamilton Mobile CapTel means to individuals who just can’t hear on the phone,” says Dixie Ziegler, Vice President of Hamilton Relay. “The captioned telephone has been available for years, but always required a special telephone. With the introduction of Web CapTel last March and now Mobile CapTel, we’re making equal access to all individuals a reality, wherever they are. While initially available on the iPhoneTM 3G, we look forward to quickly making Hamilton Mobile CapTel available on a variety of devices and networks.”
Hamilton Mobile CapTel is the natural evolution of Hamilton Web CapTel, which allows users to view captions of telephone calls on an Internet-connected computer while listening to the conversation on any phone. The advancing technology and operating systems now available on several different mobile devices coupled with the advanced networks of select carriers make it possible to use Mobile CapTel on a single device.
