The CapTel 880i Captioned Phone is a traditional-style phone that shows word-for-word captions of your conversation on a large, easy-to-read 10" display. The CapTel 880i is an ideal amplified captioned phone solution for people with low vision or who have difficulty reading standard-sized captions.
It connects to both your telephone and Internet service to give you the best of both worlds: voice and captions. The captions are provided by a free service that uses the Internet connection to automatically display captions for every call, quickly and accurately. Captions are available on calls within the United States only.

When you can't hear you have a lot of doubt when you feel something is wrong often blaming yourself for problems you might be having
Pros:The idea is great, but it needs the kinks worked out.
Cons:1. Basically you need a separate land line for the machine together with an electrical outlet. 2. Apparently after something is said the computer types the words. Too much time lapses between what is said and the typing. It gets confusing. I got it for my brother, and because hearing loss is predominately in older people their patience level is not the greatest. He quickly decided to return the machine.
Overall: No, I would not recommend this product.
Purchased this for my mother who has very limited abilities.
Pros:The screen is large and has very clear images. Customer service is excellent.
Cons:Loses its internet access and my mother is incapable of resetting it. A family member has to go to the nursing home to reset it.
Overall: Yes, I would recommend this product.
