Classroom Captioning prides itself on providing real-time, word-for-word captioning (CART), meaning-for-meaning captioning (TypeWell), and American Sign Language (ASL) services at affordable prices. We were established in 2015 when the need for affordable captions for students in a classroom setting increased. Thanks to the ever-changing climate of the educational system due to advances in technology and remote learning, the need for services for students who are Deaf or hard of hearing has skyrocketed. At the same time, the challenges inherent to offering quality accommodations persist. Having reliable access to instruction inside the classroom enables students to advance their learning and achieve success as they pursue their chosen career paths.

The big difference (aside from our affordability) between us and other all-purpose providers of accommodations is our sharp focus on educational settings. That focus on the classroom allows us to offer budget-friendly rates for these vitally essential services and maintain a higher level of expertise and familiarity with the subject matter among our practitioners.

Remote CART:

Classroom Captioning provides remote captioning accommodations in real-time (also known as CART) for Deaf and hard-of-hearing students. Every class includes a free, raw (unedited) transcript. If requested, we’ll provide a finished transcript for a minimal fee. Classroom Captioning mainly uses steno-based captioners for greater speed, accuracy, and word-for-word quality. Our captioners are tested to write at a minimum of 180 WPM with 97% accuracy–and normally exceed that level.

Remote TypeWell:

Classroom Captioning provides remote TypeWell captioning for Deaf and hard-of-hearing students. Every class includes a free, raw (unedited) transcript. Classroom Captioning uses only TypeWell graduate transcribers for greater speed, accuracy, and meaning-for-meaning quality.

Remote ASL:

Classroom Captioning provides remote American Sign Language (also known as ASL) interpreting. Interpreters must hold certificates from RID, NAD, BEI, or EIPA (4.0 or above). Additionally, interpreters are required to have an earned associate’s degree or higher.
