Using the same high-quality captioners that produce closed captioning for television, you can receive live, real-time text streamed to an Internet-connected computer anywhere in the world. A high-speed Internet connection is required.
Participants can follow along with the dialogue by reading it on-screen as it is spoken and captioned. In order to fully participate in the discussion, a text entry window is provided for you to type to your captioner. Your comments/questions will be spoken on your behalf by the captioner at the earliest break in the discussion or where appropriate. As the captioner is speaking on your behalf, you’ll see your original text to the captioner added to the real-time streaming display. All captioned dialogue is added to an event transcript if the transcript service has been requested at the time the event was scheduled.
