Re: Phone captioning services in England #Captioning

All,

I should mention that there is also CaptionMate which is especially great with cell smart phones.  It provides captioning on both sides of the conversation while talking on the phone.  In addition, it sends an email when one has a VoiceMail message to read and saves the conversations as desired.  CaptionMate works with smart cell phones, tablets, computers, and ..... landline phones.  Here is the website for more information:  http://www.captionmate.com  The captioning is paid for by the FCC.

I like it most from among the list Bruce shared and it is free like the others.  I wish I had this app while I had my working career as a student services professional in postsecondary education.  This app and others as discussed would have saved me a lot of misunderstanding, confusion, and yes, sometimes reprimands from the sup through no fault of my own.

In the US, there are several companies that provide real-time captioning of phone calls. They are paid for by the Federal Communications Commission and are currently not available outside of the United States.

The websites for the land-line companies are:

There are several phone apps which are similarly government supported.

I hope this helps clear up your confusion.
