This course teaches the basic skills needed to provide real-time communication access using the TypeWell transcribing software. The format is designed to retain the quality of in-person classes while providing the convenience and low cost of distance learning.
After the course, further real world experience is crucial. Transcribers must gain at least 50 hours of solid experience providing communication access services before transcribing remote lectures. We recommend at least a year of experience before transcribing math or science content.
Our unparalleled software uses an adaptive teaching assistant to provide instant feedback and customizes practice activities to the individual student's strengths and weaknesses. The training software is installed onto the student's laptop computer.
The student accesses an online course account after each lesson, which explains everything step by step as the student moves through the course. There is a flexible but firm automatic schedule system which alerts the student and supervisor as needed, to keep the student's learning progress on track. Update reports are sent to the student's supervisor throughout the course.
Our team of expert TypeWell teachers provides support, encouragement, and regular focused feedback via email and phone.
