Remember when we had party telephone lines and people could ease drop on your conversations? Well telephone technology has come a long way since its introduction over 100 years ago. We now have Caption Call which uses advanced technology and a communications assistant to quickly provide written captions of what callers say.

Best news is that the captioning service is paid through a fund administered by the Federal Communications Commission and is free to the user. For more information go to or call 1-877-557-2227.
