Many deaf individuals may prefer to use Speech-to-Text Services (STTS) alone or in addition to another accommodation to have full communication access. STTS are provided in real-time by a Speech-to-Text Professional (STTP) that converts spoken and auditory information into text. Speech-to-text services come in two broad formats: verbatim and meaning-for-meaning. Common types of speech-to-text services include Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART), C-Print, and TypeWell. Read more about speech-to-text services with the resources below:
