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.

CapTel?....i thought Nextel was for the hard of hearing?

Everyone using direct connect in public takes turns yelling at the phone, sometimes twice, and then flying it up to their ear...it's even funnier when they are not using direct connect phones and start throwing hand gestures with their free hand
