What people are saying
  • CaptionMate is awesome! The speed and accuracy of transcriptions are excellent. Privacy is important to me, with CaptionMate I can now make phone calls without a third-party captionist or caller assistant (CA) involved.

    - James

  • I used to cringe every time the phone rang, but CaptionMate took away my fear.

    - Debra

  • I like the option to change the background for the font and colors, etc. I like seeing both sides of the conversation captioned. The captioning is very fast and accurate. This is the most important feature of CaptionMate.

    - Carlos

  • I work for the State of NC in the Division for Deaf and Hard of Hearing and have made a few calls with great transcribing accuracy. I would highly recommend the CaptionMate App.

    - Rick

  • I wanted to let you know that CaptionMate has been a HUGE benefit to me and helps me communicate and gives me the confidence to make calls that I would not normally make. I am hoping for CaptionMate’s continued success as I would not know what to do without it now!

    - Frank

  • Using CaptionMate has completely changed the way I communicate. It is fast and accurate and no more miscommunication. It is faster than the 3rd party relay service, and the privacy is extremely important to me. My confidence level has improved tremendously and I love CaptionMate.

    - Missy

  • CaptionMate is gamechanger for understanding phone calls much better and with more confidence since I was born deaf. This app is a MUST for people like me. For 28 years, I have avoided making or receiving phone calls because of me misunderstanding information. With CaptionMate, I rarely text anymore and love to make calls again!

    - Will

  • I love this app because I can have a conversation on my phone and see the conversation in real time on my tablet or PC. ... I have tried other similar apps but this is the best due to its tablet and PC real time display of the conversation.
