Please join us on October 15th! Clark Buxton of CapTel will be leading a presentation of the captioned telephone, products and services. The CapTel is a phone specifically designed for those with hearing loss, allowing the user to read what the caller says word for word. This presentation will cover not only the features of the four different CapTel models but also the different technologies that allow a potential user to get connected. He will also discuss some of the recent FCC changes and what it means to the captioned telephone user. A brief discussion on how to acquire a captioned phone as well as other devices will also be on the agenda. Of course, Clark will make time for Q&A.
