Getting Started with Caption.Ed and Phonak

Caption.Ed can be used with lots of different hardware devices to generate live captions on your computer, tablet or smartphone, including in scenarios where the audio source is far away, e.g. a lecture theatre. In the DSA, we often meet students who have been recommended a Phonak Roger assistive listening system, sometimes also called a 'radio aid'.

If you are a student who has been assessed for hearing loss in the DSA, your needs assessor may have spoken to you about a Phonak Roger or similar system that comprises a transmitter (with a microphone in it) and a receiver (that will send sound to your hearing aids or headphones). If you don't already have these, we would recommend discussing them with your needs assessor. You can also find out more information here.

If you do already have a Phonak Roger system, read on to see how you can get the most out of it to generate accurate captions in live settings using Caption.Ed!
