In a Gist How is TypeWell Done?
TypeWell Transcribers are highly trained professionals in specialized software for transmitting and a form of interpreting spoken word to text. TypeWell and C-Print are similar but use different software. TypeWell captures verbal spoken words and translates it into meaning-for-meaning text transcript for the viewer to read using a laptop or other web based devise such as an ipad or tablet. Any smart device that can access or view URL has the capability to be a reading device for transcription.
How is TypeWell Transcription Different from CART or C-Print?
Who Benefits the Most From TypeWell VS. Interpreters?
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 The transcription is in real time but takes out unneeded jargon, false starts, umm's and circular dialogue to create clear sentences. TypeWell is much like interpreting where the provider must think about what is being said and have an understanding not just typing word for word verbatim like you would see in CART Captioning.
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.
