Sprint Revolutionary Mobile Solution for Hard of Hearing Android Users

Sprint yesterday announced the availability of Wireless CapTel by Sprint powered by Raketu.

Wireless CapTel is an application on select Android phones that increases accessibility in mobile communications for individuals who are hard-of-hearing (who have difficulty in hearing).

The Android application allows users to read conversations with real-time word-for-word captions on their wireless phones. The application allows Sprint users place a call in the same way they would when using a traditional phone -- by dialing the number directly on the device. The innovative application then connects callers directly to the CapTel service when the phone is dialed. When the receiving party answers, callers can listen to what the other person is saying and also read captions on the phone's display screen, in real time.

Compatibility & Availability: Wireless CapTel application can be downloaded on select Android 2.2 or higher devices from the Android Market for free with an Everything Data plan*. --------
