Dual Accommodations: Interpreters and Speech-to-Text Services
Useful For: Disability Services Professionals, Interpreters, Teachers, Vocational Rehabilitation Professionals
Interpreting and speech-to-text services are commonplace accommodations for an audience that comprises several deaf individuals who rely on different communication modes (e.g., ASL, lip reading). This type of dual accommodation most often occurs at large magnet events such as conferences. Dual accommodation for an individual student in a postsecondary setting occurs less frequently but is appropriate under certain circumstances.
