Chattanooga, Tenn — Amplified telephone manufacturer Clarity, a division of Plantronics, and telephone captioning service ClearCaptions, a subsidiary of Purple Communications Inc, have announced that the companies will collaborate on the design and distribution of new products for adults with hearing loss.

Clarity’s telephone and other hearing accessory products are designed to make conversations louder, clearer, and easier for people with hearing loss while also addressing other age-related health challenges, such as low vision, limited mobility, and arthritis.

ClearCaptions provides a service that enables users to caption calls for any telephone and to choose how and where they view their captions.

"ClearCaptions is a cutting-edge company with a unique focus on simplifying communication for people with hearing loss," said Carsten Trads, president of Clarity. "By teaming up with ClearCaptions, we’ll bring together our technology and expertise to deliver new innovations to the 36 million people in the United States who have hearing loss."

"Clarity’s leadership in the amplified phone market is unrivaled, and we’re delighted to work with them to expand the product choices for people who have difficulty hearing on the phone," said Dan Luis, CEO of ClearCaptions. "With more than 10,000 Baby Boomers turning 65 every day, we believe our collaboration will address an immediate and growing need for phone amplification and captioning."
