About

What We Do

We transcribe in classrooms, businesses, and anywhere conversations take place. As we transcribe, the text is streamed wirelessly to a PC, Mac, tablet, or smartphone. We also provide video captioning, live webinar captioning, and accessibility consulting services. We customize each service to fit our client’s diverse needs, as we understand that no two projects are the same.

We use TypeWell, a system for rapidly transcribing speech to text. We are fully equipped to provide remote TypeWell transcription to the D/deaf, hard of hearing, students with autism, learning disabilities, traumatic brain injuries, or anyone else benefiting from speech-to-text services across the nation. We can also fulfill onsite needs in any state with advance notice. We provide all of the equipment and technical support necessary at no extra charge.
