Do I need a special phone to use ClearCaptions?

No. You can use the phone you have. Once you’ve registered, simply sign into our web site or app, and start your call.
If your phone is near your computer, you’ll want to display your captions on that computer’s monitor. If you have a cordless phone you use at home, or a phone that’s not near a computer, start your call from the ClearCaptions app on your Android device, iPad or iPod touch. To see your captions and hear your call at the same time on your iPhone or Android, your phone must have both a voice and data plan, and support simultaneous voice and data transmission, or have a Wi-Fi connection.
