Sometimes captions seem to be delayed. Why is that?

September 26, 2018

ClearCaptions has made numerous recent updates to ensure speed and reliability with our captioning service. Captioned calls are typically connected within 3 seconds of the start of a call.

 

Once your call is connected, automated speech recognition software, or in some cases, a captioner is assigned to your conversation. Occasionally at the beginning of the call, it takes a moment for the captions to appear on your screen. This is normal.

If you have questions about ClearCaptions service, for home and mobile call use, contact us online or call 1-866-246-7850.
