What we do

Onsite and Online Captioning
We enable the deaf and hard of hearing, as well as non-native English speakers and others, equal access to actively participate in discussions by reading the English text displayed on the Speech to Text Reporter’s laptop. 

  1. ONSITE CAPTIONING
    Our Speech to Text Reporters verbatim text is displayed in a scrolling format and can be shown on larger screens or monitors, where suitable, for a larger number of readers.

    Our Speech-to-Text Reporters can work on a one-to-one basis for an individual in many different situations, for example at a work meeting or a medical appointment. The person will have the Speech to Text Reporter’s laptop close to them and will read the scrolling text.

    Our Speech to Text Reporters may also be used at conferences and public debates. Their live verbatim text would be projected to a large screen or screens so that the whole audience can see it. 

  2. ONLINE CAPTIONING 
    Using our online service opens a world of possibilities in both a business and personal capacity.  

    Meetings can take place anywhere on any kind of device with an internet connection - a mobile, tablet, laptop computer, monitor or large screen.  

    Even if you are abroad or in the UK and require short notice access to an important call or meeting using our system enables your impromptu last minute conference calls to happen.  

    We are flexible and can tailor our services to your needs.

    Our Speech to Text Reporters listen in to a meeting over a phone link/teleconference or Skype and by using secure screen share software someone in a different location can view the text produced on their own device.  

    Our service is economical and because there is no travel involved there is far more availability and flexibility.

    The system has been used in teleconferences, meetings, conferences and post show theatre discussions.
