FEDERAL LAW PROHIBITS ANYONE BUT REGISTERED USERS WITH HEARING LOSS FROM USING INTERNET PROTOCOL (IP) CAPTIONED TELEPHONES WITH THE CAPTIONS TURNED ON. InnoCaption is a certified IP captioned telephone service provider. InnoCaption uses a live stenographer to generate captions. The stenographer generates captions of what the other party to the call says. These captions are then sent to your phone. There is a cost for each minute of captions generated, paid from a federally administered fund.

Having Wi-Fi on means that your phone is enabled to connect to a Wi-Fi source. To actually be connected to a specific Wi-Fi network, you will need to go into your phone’s settings and connect to a Wi-Fi.
InnoCaption only provides IP-CTS. By law, InnoCaption is not and cannot be a substitute for CART or in-person transcription. FCC does differentiate between the IP CTS and CART (live-event captioning). CART provides a complete translation of all spoken words and environmental sounds for the benefit of an individual consumer or larger group in a variety of settings, including classrooms, courtrooms, religious services, conferences and so forth. CART is a fee-based service. It is stipulated in our conditional certification with FCC that InnoCaption cannot be used as a substitute for CART or for in-person transcription because those services are not covered under the TRS fund.
Sometimes when we are connected to multiple Wi-Fi sources, our phones will have weak signals. We suggest disconnecting from all current Wi-Fi sources and reconnecting to the Wi-Fi you wish to use.
These connection issues often occur when your WiFi router has buffering issues, which can lead to delays over time. Power off your Wi-Fi router for 1-2 minutes and then turn it back on. This will clear the buffering and refresh the connection. Alternatively, turn off your mobile device’s Wi-Fi connection and make/receive calls on a 4G/LTE network, which may have better connection stability.
Yes, you can set up “Call Forwarding” through your network carrier so that all inbound calls to your number are picked up by the InnoCaption app. This means you don’t have to give out your new InnoCaption number to your contacts, as they can continue to call you on your existing cell number. Since the call forwarding instructions differ depending on which network carrier and mobile device you are using, please refer to our manual. If you need assistance, you can contact our support team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
ASR stands for “Automated Speech Recognition” and is an alternative feature you can select for captioning. When using our ASR feature, your call will not be captioned by a live stenographer, but instead by AI speech recognition software. InnoCaption allows you to set up either captioning mode as your default setting.
