Live Remote Captioning
LRC enables meetings or lectures to be converted remotely into text and then displayed in real time on a delegate’s laptop via a secure website. This means those who are deaf or hearing-impaired, and those for whom English is not their primary language can easily and instantly understand the spoken word without the need to lip-read. In short, it offers them complete and equal participation in live events as they happen.
As LRC is a remote service exploiting specialist technology, it is also flexible. The end user can be located anywhere in the world – all they need is internet and phone access. For universities, businesses and government it’s an ingenious and cost-effective way of bridging the communication gap.
