Real Time Captioning


Other students may need to use the services of a real-time captioner. A Captioner will go to
class with the student and will use a steno-machine (like a court reporter uses) to
transcribe the lecture onto a laptop computer from which the student will read. The
captioner brings and sets up all of this equipment. While the student reads the lecture, he
or she can also take notes on the laptop. At the end of class, the lecture and notes are
saved to disc and the student prints them out in the Disabled Students Center to use when
studying for exams. DSS will arrange for this service when necessary.
