Schaumburg Library program explains CaptionCall service
A free service for those with hearing loss will be explained during "Stay Connected with a Free CaptionCall Phone" from 1-2 p.m. Friday, June 18, on Zoom with the Schaumburg Township District Library.
Register at SchaumburgLibrary.org to receive the Zoom link.
Participants will learn about CaptionCall's free captioning service that makes it easier for people with hearing loss to communicate with family, friends, doctor's offices and more.
CaptionCall phones are optimized for individuals with hearing loss. The unit uses voice-to-text technology, assisted by captioning agents, to transcribe conversations so that other speakers' words appear on the CaptionCall screen.
The large, easy-to-read text automatically scrolls during the conversation. It dials, rings and works just like a regular phone. Those attending the program will learn all about these services and features.
A recording of this program will be posted to Schaumburg Library's YouTube Channel at SchaumburgLibrary.tv.
