What makes hearing on the telephone so difficult?


Many veterans struggle with hearing loss, ranging anywhere from a mild to severe loss. Even with a slight hearing loss, it can be difficult, even frustrating, to hear on the telephone. Why? The diagram below shows how the frequency range provided by your phone service is extremely condensed, eliminating many of the high and low frequency tones. Many consonants and other important sounds are lost over the phone.


Combine that with any degree of hearing loss, and using the phone can be a real challenge. Even with the help of hearing aids, phone conversations can still be difficult.

There is a new solution that helps you use the phone again with confidence. It’s called CaptionCall—a revolutionary new amplified telephone that offers superb sound quality with customizable audio settings to match your unique hearing loss. Plus, it displays smooth scrolling captions of what callers say on a large, easy-to-read screen to reinforce anything you might miss due to the limited frequency range.

CaptionCall is currently available to U.S. Veterans absolutely free – regularly $149. That includes the CaptionCall phone, delivery, and installation assistance. And for veterans with hearing loss, the captioning service is always free, funded and administered by the FCC. That means no out-of-pocket costs to you – ever! All you need is an internet connection and home phone line. (Hearing loss is required to participate in this program.)

To sign up for a free CaptionCall phone, visit www.CaptionCall.com/Veterans and click on the ORDER NOW button at the bottom of the page, or call toll free 1-877-557-2227 and refer to promotion code MSVETS to receive a free phone (limited time offer). Now you can use the phone again with confidence!
