  • Cued Language Transliteration
  • Signed Exact English transliteration (SEE)
  • Speech-to-Text Services (TypeWell): This is live captioning in the classroom. A device sits on your desk while you read in real time what is being said. Some of our students read everything from the device, while others only glance down when they miss something.
  • Assisted Listening Devices or FM Systems: The professor wears a microphone that transmits to an earpiece in your year. This enables you to hear the professor more clearly.
  • Peer Note-Taking: Notes will be provided to you by another student who is in the same class.
