PhoneCaption, in particular, caters to hard of hearing individuals and the free service maintains valiant efforts to ease and facilitate communication levels.
The inevitable frustrations that one who is hard of hearing faces when using telephone based technology can be alleviated by having near real time next displayed on their computer screen through the internet in order to understand the other party’s end of the conversation.
