Captioning for the Classroom?

Thanks to QIAT listserv for highlighting this resource

Question: We are looking to find resources/organizations that are using CART in the classroom, or any other equipment that would provide real-time captioning and transcription in the classroom. Your help is appreciated. 

Answer: We are using C-Print with two of our students in two different buildings. Each captioner has a computer and one student uses an iPad to get the captions and the other uses and Ausus Notebook running Windows 8. Each of the captioners use a full size laptop. We've been having really good experiences with this. This is the 2nd year using C-Print.

What is C-Print Captioning? From the website:

"C-Print Captioning, also known as text interpreting, was developed at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf, a college of the Rochester Technical Institute in Rochester, New York. It was developed as a communication access service option for Deaf and Hard of Hearing individuals who prefer printed text interpreting." Learn more about C-Print.
