Sprint Announces Caption Calling for iOS Devices

Sprint Announces Caption Calling for iOS Mobile DevicesOn Wednesday, Sprint announced the availability of Wireless CapTel by Sprint for all iOS-powered devices.

For iPhone, iPod, and iPads owners, the new app increases accessibility of mobile communications for individuals with hearing loss, Sprint says.

If you’re not familiar, Wireless CapTel by Sprint allows users to read conversations with real-time word-for-word captions on their wireless phones.

Wireless CapTel by Sprint users place a call in the same way they would when using a traditional phone – by dialing the number directly on the device. The revolutionary application then connects callers directly to the CapTel service when the phone is dialed. When the receiving party answers, callers can listen to what the other person is saying and also read captions on the phone’s display screen.

The application can be downloaded on iOS devices from the Apple App Store or iTunes for free with an Everything Data plan.

In addition to iOS, Sprint currently provides Wireless CapTel on select Android devices.
