One of the most common difficulties patients with hearing loss face is the ability to clearly understand phone calls. Captioned telephones have made this much easier by allowing the user to read along as they listen to the conversation. Many patients have successful phone conversations everyday using this technology, however these have only been available for landlines until now. InnoCaption has revolutionized the industry by developing a Smartphone App for iPhone and Android that turns your cell phone into an assistive captioning device. This free app allows patients to enjoy the ease of understanding all their phone calls whether they are at home or on the go.
The InnoCaption app is free to download and includes features for captioned incoming and outgoing calls, voicemail, caller ID, and speed dial. Funded by the Federal Communications Commission, their patented technology uses stenographers to provide real-time captioning with at least 95% accuracy. Patients can now enjoy their smartphone the way it was intended, for convenient and accessible communication. We are excited to see how this new technology can benefit our patients!
