Instant Captioning is a captioning system designed for use by individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing. This system enables users to receive live captioning of personal conversations, business meetings, lectures, etc., providing a print transcript of everything that is said. Designed to work with a variety of devices, including laptop or notebook computers, cellular phones with alphanumeric display screens, or a small hand-held captioning unit. The captioning unit enables the captions to be displayed while the user participates in the conversation or meeting. Access to captioning is provided via a cellular connection or standard phone line. To receive captions, the user presses a button on the captioning unit that automatically dials the captioning center. A specially-trained operator or captionist listens to the conversation through the captioning unit's built-in microphone and transcribes everything said by the other party or parties using powerful, customized voice-recognition technology. The text is then transmitted to the captioning device using the same telephone connection. Transcription occurs virtually at real-time speed, enabling the written text to appear on the unit's screen very closely to the speed at which the words are spoken.
