Realtime Caption Reporting Curriculum Development--Year Two. Final Report.
Amarillo Coll., TX.
An associate degree program to train real-time caption reporters was developed at Amarillo College in Texas. The competency-based curriculum contained steno caption writer and certified court reporter options. The program featured internships at a local television station, during which students received individual hands-on training conducted by practicing real-time reporters. Efforts to publicize the program included articles in Amarillo College student publications and the local news media and live demonstrations of the captioning equipment for schools and various community groups. Five deaf students received classroom services one class per week during the spring semester of the project's first year. Articulation agreements with Amarillo business and vocational programs to facilitate high school graduates' entry into the real-time caption reporter associate degree program are now in progress, and goals and materials for the project's second year are being developed. (Attached to this final report are miscellaneous supporting data, including project summary sheets, a steno-captionist competency profile, the approved curriculum, project publicity materials, a list of advisory committee members, and advisory committee meeting notes.)
