What happens to my captions once the call is over?

As soon as you disconnect your call, the captions disappear from the communications assistant station. In keeping with Federal Communication Commission (FCC) regulations governing Relay Services, no records of any call content are recorded or stored by caption communications assistants.

FEDERAL LAW PROHIBITS ANYONE BUT REGISTERED USERS WITH HEARING LOSS FROM USING INTERNET PROTOCOL (IP) CAPTIONED TELEPHONES WITH THE CAPTIONS TURNED ON. IP Captioned Telephone Service may use a live operator. The operator generates captions of what the other party to the call says. These captions are then sent to your phone. There is a cost for each minute of captions generated, paid from a federally administered fund.
