Dear students, instructors, and support professionals,

During this project, participants are able to submit recorded lectures (audio or video) to a special Hosted Transcription Service that automatically creates multimedia transcripts.

Research results to date are very positive. Students that participated in the first phase overwhelmingly endorsed the system and indicated that the availability of these transcripts augmented other supports, facilitated better access to course information, and led to increased independence.

For the second phase of the project, we have made a few important changes:

  • Until we reach our maximum number of participants, students will now be able to upload unlimited files for transcription
  • The system can now accept various media formats, including mp3
  • Students that complete the project will receive a $50 stipend for their contributions to the research

Please feel free to share these links with anyone who might be interested in this unique opportunity.
