Caption Call Account Manager

My name is Tyrone Allen and I’m the CaptionCall Account Manager for the Houston, TX area.

CaptionCall is the producer of captioned and amplified phones for hearing impaired individuals. During this uncertain time, our advanced, captioned phone is needed now more than ever for the at-risk and underserved. The hearing & understanding of crucial instructions are paramount! CaptionCall provides “a communication bridge to the outside world” which is vitally important to connect with loved ones, government resources, avoiding isolation and staying informed. The phone & captioning service is free

I am hearing impaired and wear hearing aids in both ears, so I intimately know about the daily challenges to communication that the hearing impaired face. WE tend to “suffer in silence” because WE don’t know about all the technological advances that exist. I’m very passionate about what I get to do every day!!

Chatpal: The new app for chat

Unfortunately, not everyone is familiar with ASL. Yet, situations can generally call for us to communicate with these individuals to simply get information or perform tasks. Lip reading offers some relief, but is not always reliable. Why not just send them a quick text?

One-on-one, One-to-many, Group Broadcasts–with C-Pals. ALL this WITHOUT a user’s contact details or compromising your own PRIVACY. Much like in the real world? Yup! But much more. That’s what we are talkin’ about..a’hem chatting about.

And YES, we can….
