Free Phone with Certification

Per recent FCC regulations, individuals with hearing loss may receive an Internet-based CapTel phone free of charge if they complete and submit a Third Party Certification of Eligibility.

The Third-Party Certification must be signed by a hearing health professional who confirms that the person applying has a hearing loss and would benefit from IP-based Captioned Telephone Service in order to communicate effectively over the phone.

NOTE:

Third Party Certification only applies to CapTel models that are Internet-based (CapTel 840i, CapTel 880i and CapTel 2400i)
Third Party Certification cannot be used for CapTel models that do not have an Internet connection (CapTel 840 / CapTel 800 / CapTel 200)

    LA LEY FEDERAL PROHÍBE A CUALQUIER PERSONA, SALVO A LOS USUARIOS REGISTRADOS QUE PRESENTEN PÉRDIDA DE LA AUDICIÓN, UTILIZAR TELÉFONOS DE SUBTÍTULOS POR PROTOCOLO DE INTERNET (IP) CON LA FUNCIÓN DE SUBTÍTULOS ACTIVADA. El Servicio Telefónico Subtitulado IP podría estar a cargo de un operador en vivo. El operador genera subtítulos que indican lo que dice la persona que llama. Estos subtítulos son enviados a su teléfono. Hay un costo por cada minuto de subtítulos generados, que se paga mediante un fondo federalmente administrado. No se le aplica costo alguno al usuario de CapTel por utilizar el servicio. (v5.4 7-18)
