How do I check my answering machine messages using the CapTel 840i?


You can listen to your Answering Machine messages over the CapTel handset, while at the same time reading captions of what the messages say. There are two ways to play your Answering Machine messages:

Option 1: From CapTel Display Screen

  1. The CapTel display lets you know when there are new messages waiting for you. Press the UP button to listen to new messages.
  2. Follow the directions on the display screen to lift the CapTel handset and listen to your messages.
  3. Captions of the message will appear on the display screen while the message is playing.
  4. When you are finished listening to each message, you can: Press YES to erase the message; Press NO to replay the current message; Press UP arrow button to review previous messages; Press DOWN arrow button to move to the next message.
  5. Hang up the handset when you are finished playing your messages.

NOTE: If you need to, you can get new captions for your answering machine message. To re-caption a message, press the CAPTIONS button after the answering machine message has already played. CapTel will re-play the voice message while displaying a new set of captions.
