A Message from Sue Decker – Founder, Chief Marketing Officer, User, and Hard of Hearing MCS User
For many of us, we still remember the frustration of relying on our families and friends to make our telephone calls and translate both sides of the conversation. Well, the “times are changing!” Empowered today by technology, folks like me who are hard of hearing can have the functional equivalence of our hearing friends to give us the mobility, security, independence, and freedom that cell phones provide. Using our Mobile Captions Service™, you will now be able to read what is being said as text captions that are displayed on the screen of your cell phone. Also, it’s available anywhere you travel in the U.S. where service exists.
It’s a service designed to meet each user’s unique needs. For example, the “voice carry-over” feature allows you to speak for yourself…and you’ll still be able to hear your calling party, but you can also read what they say so you Catch Every Word!™. Plus, you can modify the size of the text, adjust how fast the caption scrolls and even save the entire text portion of the conversation. All of this is on a mobile phone no different from the ones we see every day at the mall, at work, during cultural events, in fact just about anywhere we need to go.
In 1990, The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) provided, specifically to people who are hearing impaired, access to our nation’s telecommunications system using relay services. MCC has taken that mandate one step further with our new Mobile Captions Service.
At MCC, we’ve combined our collective experience and talents to develop our revolutionary technology and we have worked diligently to improve access to the one last holdout to functional equivalence: the mobile telephone network. It works for me, and I know it will change your life for the better. At MCC we developed Mobile Captions Service for me and for you, and you won’t find anyone who works harder to bring innovation, independence and freedom to your life.
