This year the CACUSS Conference goes to Winnipeg, and so does IR Broadcast Captioning, IR. From June 19 to 22, 2016, the conference brings together individuals who work in Canadian post-secondary institutions in student affairs and services. The overall purpose of attending this conference is to help those at the institutions go back and be able to provide enhanced services to the students they serve.
This is also key for IR. As a service provider for students with hearing impairments, introducing attendees to just how simple Remote CART and Classroom Captioning is will be the main focus for our team. One of the biggest issues facing disability offices today is the lack of interpreters that are readily available. In major centres this may be less of an issue, but smaller centres find it very difficult to provide services to students that require an interpreter. The second thing to consider is not every student uses a sign language interpreter, specifically late-deafened students.
That’s where IR’s Remote CART and Classroom Captioning is very beneficial. Being remote, we can easily provide easily manageable solutions for Disability Offices in ensuring the needs of the student are met.
If you are in Winnipeg for CACUSS, stop by and talk to us. If you won’t be attending, contact us and we can let you know how our services can make your planning next semester that much easier.
