Build an enduring collaboration with an expert support team that understands your organization's needs.

Whether you work in Accessibility Services, Human Resources, or another coordinating role, our solution-oriented team can help make your job easier. TypeWell is a cost-effective and advanced speech-to-text accommodation that’s easy to implement and maintain at your school, business, or organization. 

To provide access to substantive content in classes or meetings, you need a skilled speech-to-text transcriber — not just a note taker. We offer the most effective training in our industry. TypeWell transcribers use advanced software that’s continually modernized with new features and dictionary updates.

Testimonial

The instructors we’ve worked with have really enjoyed having this type of accommodation in the classroom. They know they need to make their lecture accessible to the deaf/hard-of-hearing students in their class. With TypeWell, they know the material is all getting across to the student, so they’re confident that the student is receiving all of the information.

TypeWell has been a wonderful addition to my [interpreting] company. The headiest response has been from our consumers: the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing students and professionals using TypeWell for their classes, public lectures, graduations, and interviews. The service providers are consummate professionals.

I truly appreciate the incredible training TypeWell provides. When I need more transcribers, I use TypeWell’s efficient online screening tools to filter out all but the best candidates. I then sponsor their enrollment in TypeWell’s basic skills course knowing they will receive excellent training and personal attention. This allows me to maintain focus on the daily task of service coordination. I check in with the trainees as needed and am always kept abreast of their progress by their instructor. TypeWell’s training process and staff are phenomenal.
