Sign Language Interpreters & Captionists
Deaf or Hard of Hearing UCF students connected with Student Accessibility Services (SAS) can request captioning services. Our staff of highly trained C-Print Captionists uses UCF’s preferred method of real-time transcription in the classroom by typing the words of the teacher and other students as they are being spoken. Students can follow along in the classroom using a netbook or mobile device allowing them access from anywhere in the room. This method of real-time text display preserves meaning and is near verbatim. An edited transcript is emailed to the student within 24 hours of the class. CART – Computer Assisted Real Time Captioning system provides a text displayed message that is word for word and includes all environmental sounds. Similar to C-Print, students can follow along using a netbook or mobile device. This method is provided if UCF C-Print staff is unavailable.
Deaf or Hard of Hearing UCF students connected with Student Accessibility Services (SAS) can request interpreting services. Sign language interpreters at UCF are skilled professional interpreters placed in the classroom to promote effective cross-cultural communication in every field of study.
