C-Print[TM]. PEPNet Tipsheet
Francis, Pam
C-Print[TM] is a computer-aided speech-to-print transcription system developed at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf (NTID) as a support service option for some deaf and hard-of-hearing students in mainstream educational environments. It was developed by NTID researchers eager to improve the classroom experience for students at both the secondary and college levels, and is being used successfully in many programs around the country. Research supports the idea that some deaf and hard-of-hearing students prefer printed text of lectures--the basis of the C-Print[TM] system--over sign language interpreters or notetakers as a means of acquiring information. Other students prefer an interpreter. It is an individual choice the Disability Support Service provider must work with. Additionally, C-Print[TM] is cost effective and can be more readily available than stenography-based services that a university or secondary school may provide. This tipsheet covers basic information about C-Print and how it can be used.
