 See captions of everything your caller says! With 40dB amplification and large, easy-to-read captions, you'll catch every word they say over the phone with the CapTel 840. CapTel 840 works with a standard analog telephone line.

CAPTEL IS AVAILABLE FOR THE U.S. ONLY. Not available for sale to California, Delaware, Missouri, and South Dakota residents. 

What you need

  • Hearing loss necessitating your use of the service
  • Analog telephone line(s)
  • Standard electrical power

The CapTel 840 Captioned Phone shows word-for-word captions of your conversation on a large, easy-to-read display. The CapTel 840 is an ideal amplified captioned phone solution for people who do not have high speed internet*. It requires a standard analog telephone line.

* Note: Because there is no internet connection with this phone, all incoming and outgoing captioned calls must go thru an 800 number caption service, which is free. 

Captions are provided by a free service that connects to the call and displays every word of what your callers say. Calls you make are automatically connected to the Captioning Service to provide captions. Captions are available on calls within the United States only.
