Whether you are new to CapTel captioned telephones or are a longtime user, there are several advanced features that make phone calls easy and convenient for people with hearing loss. This webinar explores one of those features: Dialing by Picture, which allows people who use the CapTel 2400i to dial simply by touching a picture of the person they want to call.
