Sprint today announced a new application for Android smartphones that is meant to help those customers who are hard of hearing more easily interact with their family/friends through their phone. The service, called Wireless CapTel, routes all calls placed to/made from the CapTel user through a captioning service, which transcribes the conversation into text and displays it on the device's screen where it can be read. The application is available in the Android Market and is compatible with devices running Android 2.2 Froyo and up.
