ClearCaptions Frequently Asked Questions

Find answers to commonly asked questions about ClearCaptions products and phone captioning services with our easy to navigate FAQs.

  • What is ClearCaptions®?

    ClearCaptions is a no-cost to you captioning service for qualified users:

    • U.S. residents with professionally-certified hearing loss (making it difficult to use the phone) are qualified for ClearCaptions equipment, service and support at no cost to them.

    ClearCaptions works much like closed captions on your TV. You can hear AND read what’s being said, making it easy and frustration-free to use the phone.

  • How does ClearCaptions work?

    ClearCaptions uses a combination of advanced speech recognition software and, in some cases, a live communications assistant to quickly provide captions of what your callers say.

     

    The software or operator generates captions of what the other party on 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.

  • Who can use ClearCaptions?

  • Can I place a 911 call through ClearCaptions?

    Yes, you can make emergency 911 calls from any ClearCaptions device. If you are using the ClearCaptions app on your mobile device or an internet phone connection for your home phone, there are some differences in how a call is received for the emergency services, and how they determine the location from which a 911 call has originated.

     

    It is critical you confirm your physical location address during set up of the ClearCaptions mobile app or internet phone. This ensures that in the event of a 911 emergency, any response will be directed to your location as accurately as possible. Learn more about E911 from the FCC.

  • Do I need a special phone to use ClearCaptions?

    To get ClearCaptions service at home you can select from our home phone, our mobile app or both. For more information about the ClearCaptions home phone, please visit clearcaptions.com/home-phone.

     

    ClearCaptions Mobile only supports iPhone® and iPad® devices currently (using iOS® version 12.0 or greater). For more information about the requirements, please visit clearcaptions.com/mobile-phone.

  • What do I need to use a ClearCaptions phone?

    You’ll need to create a ClearCaptions account and register for the free service before you can begin enjoying captioned calls.

     

    All you need is an active internet connection. If you don’t have a home phone or landline already, we can provide a dedicated phone number for you to use with your ClearCaptions internet phone.

     

    Getting started is easy and we’ll help you through the process. Just call us at 866-246-7850.

  • What home phone service do I need to use the Blue phone?

    ClearCaptions can deliver call captioning service to your home by either of these methods—internet phone or landline.

     

    If you have internet service in your home but don’t have a phone number to make and receive in-home calls, ask us for our no-cost ClearCaptions Number. All you need is the internet connection, and we can provide a dedicated phone number for you to use with your ClearCaptions phone.

  • What are “Internet Phone,” “Broadband Phone,” and “VoIP?”

    These terms all describe a phone technology that uses your internet connection for making and receiving phone calls, just as you would if you had a traditional “landline” phone connection.

     

    “VoIP” stands for “Voice over Internet Protocol.” VoIP is the widely-used technology that uses your internet connection to make phone calls; the voice data between you and your callers is transmitted over the same line as your internet data. With VoIP, you don’t need the usual landline (the wall connection) to make and receive phone calls.

     

    ClearCaptions delivers call captioning service to your home via internet phone, VoIP technology, and we will provide you with a dedicated in-home phone number if you currently don’t have one. All you need is an active internet service in your home.

  • What if I don’t have a phone number for my home today? Can I still get ClearCaptions?

    Of course! If you have an active internet service in your home now, ClearCaptions can provide not only our Blue in-home call captioning phone but also a no-cost dedicated phone number for making and receiving captioned calls. Just ask us when you create your ClearCaptions account.

  • Can I port or transfer my current home phone number?

    If you have a current home phone or landline that you use, our Blue home phone will plug right in and use your existing phone number. It also won’t affect other phones you’re using in the home. If you are using an internet phone or VoIP connection, or are considering getting rid of your landline, we do not currently support porting or transferring your phone number. However, it may be available soon. Contact our team for more detailed information before you make the switch at 866-246-7850.

  • I lost my caption phone User Guide. How do I get another one?

    You can download a copy right now from our website. Just visit clearcaptions.com/how-to to download to your computer or mobile device for future reference.

  • Why do I need to register my home captioning phone?

    ClearCaptions provides Telecommunications Relay Services (TRS) which are funded and regulated by the FCC. The FCC requires anyone who uses ClearCaptions to register and self-certify they are eligible to use this service.

  • Is my conversation private with ClearCaptions?

    Yes. ClearCaptions is an FCC-regulated caption provider with strict obligations for confidentiality. Your conversation is completely private. Read more in our Privacy Policy.

  • What happens to my captions once the call is over?

  • How do I forward my mobile number to my ClearCaptions Number?

    While you can provide your ClearCaptions Number directly to friends and associates in order to receive captioning when they call your mobile phone, you can just as easily forward your existing mobile phone number to your ClearCaptions Number, ensuring you get captioning for ALL of your incoming calls.

    For customers who use AT&T or T-Mobile cellular service, you can forward your calls using these simple steps:

    • Go to your phone’s SETTINGS area.
    • Tap on “Phone.”
    • Tap on “Call Forwarding” then tap “Call Forwarding” slider switch to enable.
    • Tap on “Forward to” then enter your ClearCaptions Number (be sure to include the area code).

    For customers who use Verizon/Sprint/USCellular services, you can forward your calls using these simple steps:

    • On your phone, dial *72 followed by your ClearCaptions Number.
    • If you want to remove the call forwarding, dial *73.
  • Does the ClearCaptions Mobile app need to be open for me to receive a call?

    No. Even if your phone or tablet is in sleep mode or is locked, when you receive an incoming call (either from a caller who is dialing your ClearCaptions Number or from a caller who is dialing your mobile phone number that you have previously forwarded to your ClearCaptions Number), your device will indicate you have an incoming call. When you respond to the call, you’ll see the ClearCaptions Mobile app icon; tap it to receive the incoming call with captioning.

  • Can I use the ClearCaptions Mobile app anywhere in the world?

    Unfortunately, no. You can only make and receive captioning for your mobile calls within the continental United States.

  • How much data/bandwidth does ClearCaptions Mobile use on my phone?

    Your data/bandwidth usage is tied to how often you use your mobile device to make or receive captioned calls.

    The ClearCaptions Mobile app codex uses 84kbps in bandwidth. That equates to 640kb per minute of talk time. If you used captioned mobile calling (incoming/outgoing) for 245 minutes per month, that would equal 156Mb of data per month.

  • Why do I have a second phone number when I use ClearCaptions Mobile?

    The new number you have is your personalized ClearCaptions number; it enables you to make and receive captioned mobile calls at no charge to you.

    To easily and effectively enable mobile call captioning on your phone, you can:

    • Share your ClearCaptions number with specific individuals from whom you’d like to receive captioned calls, or…
    • Forward your existing mobile phone number to your new ClearCaptions number, ensuring all incoming calls you receive will be captioned.

    To learn more about forwarding your mobile phone number to your new ClearCaptions number, see the FAQ entry, “How do I forward my mobile number to my ClearCaptions number?”

    If ever you want help, just call our Customer Experience Team at 866-868-8695.

  • Will I be charged a monthly fee to use ClearCaptions Mobile?

    That’s the best news: the ClearCaptions Mobile app, which provides you call captioning when you make or receive mobile device calls, is completely FREE to you when you qualify for the service.

    Qualifications for free call captioning only requires you have a level of hearing loss that makes it difficult for you to use a phone, and you have a mobile carrier plan for your mobile device.

  • How long can I keep my ClearCaptions Number?

    You can keep your ClearCaptions Number to use for captioned in-home internet phone or mobile device calls as long as you remain a qualified user and have an active ClearCaptions account.

     

    As a certified IP CTS (Internet Protocol Captioned Telephone Service) provider, ClearCaptions is required to ensure all registered users are properly qualified for the service.

     

    ClearCaptions does reserve the right to disable and reclaim any ClearCaptions Number if there is evidence of fraud, waste, or abuse of the service, as directed and enforced by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission.

  • What happens if I don’t use my ClearCaptions Number?

    If up to two (2) months of time elapses with no use of a ClearCaptions Number, ClearCaptions reserves the right to disable, reclaim, and reassign a number for use by another qualified individual.

    Don’t worry–if you need to use your ClearCaptions Number after such a lapse, just call us at 866-868-8695 to have a new number assigned to you (though we likely will not be able to reactivate your previous ClearCaptions Number for you).

    1. Tap Contacts from the Home screen.
    2. Your number will be displayed near the top as “My Number.”

    You can request a new ClearCaptions Number by calling our Customer Experience Team at 866-868-8695, or you make your request via email to support@clearcaptions.com.

  • How does mobile call captioning work?

    When you make or receive a mobile call that utilizes your ClearCaptions Number—giving you captioning for what the other person on the call says to you—a trained Caption Communications Assistant will be included to quickly and accurately provide the captions of what your caller says. The captions you see are presented to you in “near real-time” meaning there will be a slight delay of no more than a few seconds from when your caller speaks and when the captions for what they’ve said are displayed on your mobile device screen.

     

  • Are my mobile call captions stored on the Cloud?

    No, as soon as you disconnect your captioned mobile call, the captions you saw are immediately removed from the caption communication assistant’s station. In adhering to the strict regulations put forth by the FCC, no records of any captioned call content can be recorded or stored on any device or by any method (e.g. the Cloud) beyond your personal mobile device (phone or tablet). Your conversations are safe, private, and protected.

  • How do I add a Contact?

    Open the ClearCaptions Mobile app and tap “Contacts.” From the list of your Contacts that are displayed, tap on the Contact you wish to call.

    Alternately, you can access you mobile phone’s Contacts screen and select a Contact to call from that view.

  • How do I delete captions from a previous call?

    Open the ClearCaptions Mobile app, then tap where you see “Call Log.” From the list of past calls, tap the letter “i” to the right-hand side of an entry you want to review. Now tap “View Captions” to review the captions from that call. If you wish to delete the saved captions, just tap “Delete.”

  • The ClearCaptions Mobile app is not responding—what do I do?

    If the ClearCaptions Mobile app becomes unresponsive on your device, press and hold the power button on the phone for five seconds to initiate the power-off cycle. On the device screen, then, drag your finger on the Power switch to the “Off” position. After your device has turned off, press the power button again to restart the device.

  • I can’t make a call using the ClearCaptions Mobile app—what’s wrong with it?

    If the app seems unresponsive to complete your calls, check to be sure your device’s microphone, Contacts, and Notifications are enabled (you would have normally done this during the app install although it’s possible you might have changed one or more of these necessary settings since the time you completed the install).

    If you want assistance checking these settings, call the ClearCaptions Customer Experience Team at 866-868-8695. We’re always ready to help you.

  • Why don’t I have internet connection on my mobile device?

    If you’re unable to make calls with the ClearCaptions Mobile app due to lack of active internet connection, it’s possible that:

    • You are temporarily in a no-service zone, geographically
    • You have “airplane mode” activated on you phone (prevents call activity)
    • You have Wi-Fi only activated on your tablet but not cellular connectivity
    • You do not have an active cellular service at the moment

Only the messages that you received to your ClearCaptions Number will include captions along with the voice messages that are left for you.

  • Can I rearrange my Favorites?

    Yes. From your Favorites tab, touch and hold the “pancake stack” icon that appears on the right-hand side of each Favorite in your listing. While holding that selected Favorite, drag your finger to move the Favorite up or down your stack. Lift your finger to release the Favorite in the new position.

    You can tag as few or as many of your Contacts as you like. Favorites help you access a filtered list of those Contacts that you’ll call the most; that’s why they’re your favorites. While you could effectively flag every Contact as a Favorite, the best use of Favorites is to help you develop that fast-access, filtered list.

  • How do I delete a Favorite?

    From the Favorites tab, tap on “Edit” then tap on the red minus sign that appears on a Favorite in your list. The Favorite will be deleted from your list but the Contact will still remain in your Contact list.

    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. 

  • What happens to my captions once the call is over?

    As soon as you disconnect your call, the captions disappear from our software systems and any 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 ClearCaptions or our caption communications assistants.

    ClearCaptions is required to collect and validate your information with the FCC TRS User Registration Database in order to confirm your identity.  

    This is to ensure the fund will be protected from misuse and remains available for qualified individuals like you. For more information regarding the FCC guidelines, please visit www.ecfr.gov.

    The FCC requires we validate the information you have already provided when you signed up for your ClearCaptions account. You won’t need to provide this information again. These details include: 

      • Your full legal name 
      • Your residential address 
      • Your telephone number 
      • The last four digits of your Social Security Number 
      • Your date of birth 
      • A copy of the self-certification of eligibility for IP CTS and the date it was obtained
  • Will my information be shared?
