Enhancing Support Services.
Kolvitz, Marcia, Ed.
These three conference papers from the Biennial Conference on Postsecondary Education for Persons who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing focus on campus support services for individuals with deafness or hard of hearing. The first paper, "Realtime Captioning: Access Equals Success" (Harlene Rosen and Sandy Eisenburg), describes the services provided by the National Center on Deafness and the benefits of realtime captioning in classrooms and other campus venues. The second paper, "What Is a Qualified Interpreter. . .and How Do I Get One" (Debra C. Brenner and Bruce D. Finkbone), examines the definition of "qualified interpreter" as outlined in the federal regulations and proposes a model for interviewing and assessing interpreters. Interpreter profiles, media resources, sample questions, and assessment forms are included. The final paper, "Computer Speech Recognition as an Assistive Device for Deaf and Hard of Hearing People" (Joseph Robinson and Carle Jensema), describes how computer search recognition can be used by sign language interpreters as an assistive tool to provide more complete interpreting for students with deafness and hard of hearing in mainstream classes. (Some of the papers contain references.) (CR)
