I had all but given up using telephones because I could not keep up with the conversations. The captions were too slow and were often inaccurate or misleading. I was losing social and professional connections and becoming more isolated. Then came InnoCaption. The captions come in time to keep up with the conversations and they’re much more accurate. And because they’re on my cell phone, I can have captions anywhere I go. For me, the telephone is back and I feel like I’m reconnecting to the world. Thank you

Is InnoCaption For Me?
Are you finding it more difficult to have a conversation on your cellphone because of hearing loss?
You are not alone. About 20% of adults in the U.S. have some degree of hearing loss – that’s 48 million people! Most common causes of hearing loss are noise and aging. As you age, changes in the inner ear cause a slow but steady hearing loss. The loss may be mild or severe, but it is always permanent. However, hearing loss is affecting many more before the age of 65.
Among post-9/11 veterans, 1.5 million have come home with hearing loss and tinnitus, or ringing in the ears. The most-widespread injury for veterans has been hearing loss and other auditory complications, according to interviews and benefits data.
In June 2013, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention reported that, among 5.2 million pre-adolescents and teens, 12.5 percent (and rising) have sustained permanent noise-induced hearing damage. Researchers hypothesize that this can be attributed to the access to portable media players and earbuds.
With hearing loss, it’s easy to understand the difficulty in using something as simple as a cellphone. Many people who are losing their hearing has had it happen so gradual that it is difficult to pinpoint the change in their hearing until they find themselves actually no longer using the phone because it becomes too hard or embarrassing to ask people to repeat themselves. Hearing loss can isolate people.
However, InnoCaption’s captioning app can reconnect those with hearing loss to the people in their world!
InnoCaption is Breaking the Sound Barrier
InnoCaption’s app for smartphones provides fast and accurate instantaneous captioning for the deaf and hard of hearing who want to use their own voice to talk, but need assistance hearing the other party. There are no more delays in conversations because captioning is that instantaneous! InnoCaption empowers the user to make or
receive any phone call whenever and wherever they choose!
To be eligible for InnoCaption, you must have a hearing loss that makes it difficult to use a cellphone. The InnoCaption app is FREE to those who need it and is paid for pursuant to a program through the Interstate Telecommunications Relay Services (TRS) Fund. A portion of all telephone bills is dedicated to services like this for people who have difficulty hearing.
Thank you for introducing me to InnoCaption. It is the best thing that has happened to me and I wish it happened when I was 19 years old. Now I can communicate with my family, who aren’t native sign language users, who are equally excited about InnoCaption and use it to get in touch and stay in touch with me. I feel that InnoCaption has brought me closer to my family in the short period that I have used it. I am especially thrilled to see the text to voice option. What a revolution!

Did you know? Hearing damage is the No. 1 disability among our military veterans returning home in the fight against terror in Iraq and Afganistan, according to the Department of Veterans Affairs¹. It is estimated that auditory injury is rising 13 to 18 percent annually with 60% of returning service members experiencing hearing loss or tinnitus or both. The number is staggering…more than 1.5 million veterans are experiencing hearing loss in 2014 alone².
Auditory injuries can occur during a one-time exposure to high-
intensity noise such as small-arms fire, improvised explosive devices, or artillery fire. However, hearing loss for service members can also
result over long periods of exposure to loud ambient noise for 12-plus hours of work on a ship or aircraft.
We understand that there are many hurdles our men and women face when returning from a war-torn country. Hearing loss should not be one of them. We have a solution that will improve the quality of life for our military heroes.
Breaking the Sound Barrier for our Military Veterans
InnoCaption allows our veterans with hearing loss to communicate by making it possible to make calls just like anybody else. InnoCaption provides instantaneous captioning which allows them to have an immediate response to the other person and with the same ease and convenience as before hearing loss.
My personal struggle to hear and comprehend telephone conversations puts me at GREAT disadvantage in my job. Some days I just want to give up. I rely heavily on my iPhone but [now] with InnoCaption I have the accessibility, convenience, confidence, and mobility to use a mobile voice communication device as it was intended!
