The Hamilton Mobile CapTel application for the iPhone from Hamilton CapTel, Aurora, Neb, provides captions of telephone calls for individuals with hearing loss while they are on the go.

Available nationwide, the application, which features an intuitive interface, allows users to listen while reading captions of everything that is said during phone calls.

“The development of the iPhone App was paramount for our tech-savvy users. CapTel Service has changed people’s lives for the better–no more frustration trying to hear the person at the other end of the phone,” said Dixie Ziegler, VP of Hamilton Relay, provider of Hamilton Mobile CapTel service. “Now, iPhone users can place and receive captioned phone calls from just about anywhere. And best of all, this is a free service, available throughout the United States.”

• Available on any 3G/3GS iPhone

• Works with an iPhone compatible headset–wired or Bluetooth

• Registered Web CapTel users can download the app immediately and have access to their profile and contacts stored on the iPhone, captioning can begin within seconds
