Clarity’s Amplified Captioned Telephone converts conversations to text
Those with hearing problems and old people who prefer reading messages rather than hearing them out would welcome the arrival of the Clarity Amplified Captioned Telephone. This smart device converts phone call conversations to text, thus helping the hearing impaired communicate seamlessly. What’s more is that it also packs an amplification feature that increases the volume of the caller to 50 dB without compromising on clarity. The converted speed is displayed on a generous 7-inch touchscreen with large buttons for dialing. The screen switches to display a text transcription of the conversation so older users can keep up, as well as a log is maintained for future reference.
This can also help journalists conducting phone or microphone interviews, thus completely helping them overcome the need for transcribing. It would cost $229.
