This project implements and examines use of a C-Print prototype that displays captions on various mobile devices (e.g. iPad, Android Smartphone) to support communication access of deaf/hard of hearing students (D/HH) in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) laboratory classes.
- Expand the venues in which the service with the C-Print Mobile prototype software is used to several universities and community colleges, in addition to the Rochester Institute of Technology.
- Conduct experimental investigations to evaluate the extent to which the service aids student access, learning, confidence and STEM interests in lab classes at the postsecondary level.
- Trials with C-Print Mobile in STEM lab settings
- Collection and analysis of information on student academic achievement, confidence, and STEM interests
- Assessment of captioning accuracy
- Observations of captionists’ and students’ use of C-Print Mobile
- Interviews with instructors and captionists
