C-Print

WHAT IS C-PRINT?

C-Print is a computer-aided speech-to-text system developed at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf, a college of Rochester Institute of Technology, as an access service option primarily for individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing and in mainstream educational settings.

C-Print also can be used in meetings and workshops, and with individuals who have other disabilities.

C-Print online training topics:

  • Abbreviation System
  • Automatic Speech Recognition
  • The Captionist's Role
  • Condensing Strategies
  • Formatting Text and Preparing Notes


ONLINE TRAINING IS NOW AVAILABLE!

HOW DOES IT WORK?

A trained operator, called a C-Print captionist, produces text through abbreviated keyboard typing or voice. In general, C-Print can provide a meaning-for-meaning translation of the spoken English content.

INTERESTED IN PARTICIPATING?

Here's what you'll need:

  • Access to a computer (Windows operating system) with C-Print Pro software installed.
  • Access to the Internet (Internet Explorer 5.0 or greater).
  • Access to an e-mail account to forward completed practice assignments.
  • Time to complete the online training modules and off-line practice assignments. There are six sections of training modules to complete. Online training is self paced, and the time commitment required for successful completion is dependent on the individual.
