Sign Language Interpreting/Transcribing

Student Life Disability Services will coordinate interpreting and/or transcribing services for D/deaf or hard of hearing students registered with the office. Sign language interpreting and transcribing services are available for all university activities.

All Disability Services interpreters are selected based on an assessment of interpreting skills, experience in the post-secondary setting, and the ability to handle the level of discourse common in a university setting. All Disability Services full-time staff interpreters are RID-NAD certified.

Transcribers are trained using Typewell and C-Print, and are selected based on an assessment of transcribing skills, experience in the post-secondary setting, and the ability to handle the level of discourse common in a university setting. The student receiving transcribing services can view the real-time transcript via a mobile device or laptop from anywhere in the classroom.
