Real-Time Transcribing

Real-time transcribing is a method of using specialized software to convert spoken language into text.  Students are able to read the transcript real-time on a laptop, tablet or their own personal device through a weblink.  After each class, students will receive a transcript after each class for their review.  

Notetaker Program (NP)

Taking notes in the classroom can be a challenge for those who rely primarily on sight for communication.  The NCOD: Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services provides an opportunity for students in the classroom to be notetakers for their deaf and hard of hearing classmates.

The benefit for becoming a Notetaker will be Priority Registration for the following Fall/Spring semester only (priority registration appointment dates will be during the early stage of the "Registration by Appointment" registration period).  Note - Notetakers provide services during the Fall and Spring semesters only.

You can find more information about the Notetaker Program through DRES.
