Are you having issues with talking on the phone?
While we are staying home and connecting with friends and loved ones over the phone, it can be difficult to hear and understand them. Our Approved Vendor, ClearCaptions, provides captions of conversations in real-time on a landline or mobile phone so you do not have to worry about asking someone to repeat what they say when talking to them.
If you are suffering from hearing loss, you can use the service for free with certification from a healthcare professional. It is free through the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the equipment used is funded through Title IV of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The service is available on any IOS device (iPhone 5S and newer) and the Android version is soon to come. To get started, all you need to do is create an account on ClearCaptions.com. The account is needed to satisfy the FCC requirement for Telecommunications Relay Services (TRS) that requires all users to self-certify that they can use the service. Ongoing customer support is provided for those who have any questions or issues using the device at any time after it has been installed.Services are available throughout the USA, Anas can be reached for Florida residents at 386-210-9844.
We understand how difficult it is to live with hearing loss and strongly recommend ClearCaptions to help alleviate the issue when communicating over the phone. We took this into consideration and are happy to now provide the OurSeniors Radio podcast on YouTube. It is easier to access our podcast on a platform that you are more familiar with and can listen on a device other than your phone.
