What is Speech-to-Text?
Speech-to-Text is a computer-aided captioning system used as a support service option for Deaf and Hard of Hearing individuals. This service is most commonly used in the educational environments; however, it can also be used in business meetings, seminars, and medical settings.
A trained typist, called a captionist, types the spoken content into a laptop computer utilizing specialized software, called C-Print, developed by The National Technical Institute for the Deaf.
The typed information appears on the consumer’s laptop simultaneously, so the consumer can follow along during the session. Notes may then be e-mailed to the consumer for review. This service can be offered on-site or remotely.
