Sprint announces Wireless CapTel for hard-of-hearing Android users

Sprint today announced a new solution for their hard-of-hearing Android users with the debut of Wireless CapTel. Powered by Raketu, the app can be downloaded for free on select Android phones running 2.2 or higher.  Wireless CapTel provides the ability to read conversations in real time with word-for-word captions on their smartphone.  Users who have the app installed will find that it automatically connect callers to the CapTel service when the phone is dialed.  Parties on the other will be able to listen normally while the mobile user can read captions on the phone’s display screen.
