NTID wins $1.1 million for C-Print upgrades

The U.S. Department of Education has awarded two grants totaling $1.1 million to NTID to test and evaluate new features of its C-Print® speech-to-text support service. C-Print provides real-time text display of spoken English, and then saves the text for study.

Designed to enhance deaf and hard-of-hearing students’ ability to participate in class discussion, the features are part of NTID’s new C-Print Pro software, allowing for communication between captionist and student computers, and enabling students to highlight the real-time display of text and to take notes.
