Pairing Bluetooth Hearing Aids with CaptionCall Phones and Smartphones
One of the cool things about our CaptionCall and Olelo technology is users can connect both to Bluetooth hearing aids.

If you have patients using Bluetooth hearing aids based on the Hands-Free Profile (HFP) specification, give them these instructions that explain how they can quickly and easily pair their hearing aids with their CaptionCall phone or smartphone.

Hint: You can print your patient a physical copy or send them the PDF by email or text message. (Note: Pairing won’t work with Bluetooth Low Energy [Bluetooth LE] devices.)

CaptionCall and Olelo by Sorenson are available in the United States only. FEDERAL LAW PROHIBITS ANYONE BUT REGISTERED USERS WITH HEARING LOSS FROM USING INTERNET PROTOCOL (IP) CAPTIONED TELEPHONES WITH THE CAPTIONS TURNED ON. IP captioned telephone service may use a live operator. The operator 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. No costs are passed along to individuals who qualify for the service. The CaptionCall phone and Olelo app remain the property of Sorenson in order to provide ongoing support, service, and upgrades. Patent information:  sorenson.com/legal.
