Captioning Apps

There is a huge range of captioning applications (apps) available for smartphones. Captioning for phone calls can be very helpful for someone with a hearing impairment as it adds captions to phone calls so you can hear and read what’s being said. Due to the sheer number of captioning apps available, it is not possible for Assist Ireland to list all of these apps as individual products in this section.

We recommend searching the Apple Apps Store or Android Apps Store to browse the apps available, and if necessary or possible, speak with an occupational therapist or speech and language therapist for advice on what apps might be suitable for you.

If you are new to this technology and would like to know more about smartphones and apps and how they can help you, we have an Information Sheet Apps for People with Disabilities and Older People which explains what they are and what they can do. There is a section within this document entitled Captioning for Phone Calls that gives examples of some of these apps.
