Abstract:

Many disabled students, especially those who have hearing problems, could benefit from real-time transcription of classroom auditory communication to replace or supplement interpreting. Various professional services exist that could be used to provide such transcription, but all have high cost as a major drawback. The proposed project focuses on establishing a low-cost, school-operated, remote real-time transcription service for disabled students. The proposed project will create a training package that will allow a school system to set up its own remote real-time transcription service in a school building using off-the-shelf equipment and software. In Phase I, the feasibility of this concept is explored. In Phase II, the concept will be expanded and a comprehensive, marketable training package will be created.
