Live captioning for the workplace made easy

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]In the workplace, it can be extremely difficult for people who are deaf or hard of hearing to keep up with what is going on in meetings and conferences, where people talk over each other and often at a great speed, it can be impossible to lip-read and keep up with all of the information. Despite their best efforts, it can be tough and problematic to get involved with other people or to feel confident enough to participate.

Florence Murphy, who works at Bennetts Associates Architects in London, uses Ai-Live to make her life at work much easier. The service, which provides live speech-to-text content that Florence can read as her meetings are taking place, is supported by the Access to Work scheme and can be viewed on any web-enabled device, such as a laptop, tablet or smartphone. Verbatim transcripts are saved immediately and provided at the end of each session – an informative tool and point of reference in the workplace.

Having meetings and conferences captioned in real-time allows clients like Florence to participate with much greater ease, receiving a level of detail and accuracy that is not always possible with conventional note-takers.

At Ai-Media, our captioners are specifically trained to caption a wide range of workplace events. Clients are encouraged to upload any relevant information to their Ai-Live user portal – such as speaker names, company-specific jargon and acronyms – to ensure that the captions and transcripts are as accurate as possible.

Florence has discussed her experiences with Ai-Live, explaining how it has helped her in the workplace and what exactly the service provides.
