 The way it works is the provider can either be onsite or via remote listening to speech, lecture and then simultaneously transcribes what is being said for the view to read. Instead of creating a speech-to-word real time text the transcriber creates sentences that reflect what is being said in the most clear and understandable way possible. The viewer can read what is being said on a computer, laptop, or cell phone device by using a URL with high speed internet connection. When the lecture is over the transcripts are edited for the student and then sent to a drop box for the viewer to read at their convenience and review anytime.
