HOW RELAY CONFERENCE CAPTIONING WORKS

Here’s how two different persons use Relay Conference Captioning (RCC) for their conference call:  Ava, who prefers to communicate via typing, and James, who prefers to speak.

OPTION 1: If you, as an RCC user, prefer to communicate via typing

A text box is provided for you to type to the captioner. The captioner will read aloud your comments or questions at the earliest break in the discussion.  As the captioner is speaking on your behalf, you will see your text on the real-time streaming display.

Captioner joins teleconference bridge, then listens and transcribes event (conference call or webinar).

 

You read the captions of the event via a computer, laptop, table or mobile device.

 

If you would like to add something to the event, type a message in “Message to Captioner” text box and send it.

 

Then the captioner reads aloud your message to attendees.

OPTION 2: If you, as an RCC user, prefer to speak for yourself

If you prefer to speak directly to the other attendees during the event (conference call or webinar), first join the teleconference bridge provided for all event attendees.

Captioner joins teleconference bridge, then listens and transcribes event.

 

You read the captions of the event via a computer, laptop, table or mobile device.

 

If you would like to add to the event, speak directly to attendees using the teleconference bridge.
