Verbatim…..the only way to GO!
This is an incredible service for all people…..read on….
CaptionsVerbatimPro.com is where it’s at! It means exactly what it says. We caption the spoken word….any place…anytime….wherever it’s needed, wanted and requested. CaptionsVerbatimPro.com was initially designed for those with hearing impairment of the nerve type who can read what is being said from beginning to the end as well as normal hearing individuals who cannot write notes fast enough to keep up with fast speakers / teachers as well as those who prefer to spend their time listening to a speaker versus taking notes. At the end of each session, with a click of a button, the caption provider can transfer the entire verbatim account to every student computer in the classroom and even provide translation to other languages with a click and service all attendees. Yes, the time has come to provide this service to all people. We need to break away from the old school of separating people in the learning arena. The service enhances the learning process for all people who desire a backup
reference to all Boardrooms meetings, conventions, seminars, college
classes, wherever a speaker is giving a presentation. CaptionsVerbatimPro
is here and moving this service into the normal world to service all who
want and request the service. There is only one world and that’s where it
This is an incredible service that eliminates a student having to make
their disability, whatever it is, known to all. It eliminates the embarrassment
and the segregation and equalizes opportunities to learn in any classroom.
Learning should not end on the last day of school. Education is a lifetime
Closed captions have been around since the ’80’s when they started
captioning the television programs. Then in the mid 90’s it was
introduced to the deaf community in the community college system
as C.A.R.T. Services. At that time and up to this time it’s still labeled
as C.A.R.T. services. Not many outside the deaf community college
system knew what that meant. If you Google CART you just might pull
up a company who builds carts. Only within the latter years one
could find maybe one or two C.A.R.T. services available on the same
However, the hearing impaired community, specifically those with a
nerve impairment were not aware of these services nor were the
normal hearing group with other disabilities. It’s only been in the
last few years that some people found out about captions by pure
accident and started asking questions and some ventured forward
and asked for the services.
Because they were hearing impaired versus deaf they were
sometimes denied the service especially if they wore a hearing aid.
That’s because some people thought if they wore an aid/s
they should be able to hear everything. Not everyone truly
understands hearing impairment and certainly not nerve loss.
We’ll talk about that at a later time to help all to understand the
difference between nerve impairment and conductive loss.
Some are now calling their company’s Caption Services vs. CART
Service. That’s good growth because Captioning is what it is. Everyone
knows what captioning means and captioning should be for everyone
and anyone who request the services.
Today CaptionsVerbatimPro.com provides realtime captions for a wide
variety of people and company’s. It is used in top business boardrooms
as a record of past discussions. It is used in large groups of people such
as seminars, conventions and even in small groups of people such as in
investment groups and private college classes. The list goes on and on.
And, yes I’m talking about normal hearing people are using captions.
It is an incredible service especially for business where they need a record
of the entire discussion to refer back to. It eliminates “he said, she said.”
It’s now being used in the news as streaming services…it’s one and the
same ….just a different technique being used.
Those with hearing loss of the nerve type can rejoice because they no
longer have to tell others they cannot hear! They will now know the
question from the back of the room and the answer from the front of
the room. They will now be able to contribute to the conversations in a
group setting at a seminar versus having to ask the person next to them
what was said. They will be able to be independent and express their
thoughts without concern of saying the wrong thing and/or responding
inappropriately. They will now know the punch line to a joke versus
having to ask the person next to them, “What did he say?” And put up
with the normal response of, “Ohhhh, it was nothing…he just told a joke.”
Oh really? And everyone is knocking themselves silly laughing at the
punch line and it was nothing? Boy do you ever get the urge to pull his
toenails out! They will now KNOW what was said and not wander what
was said. There is a huge difference in knowing you know, and thinking
you know. This service will solve that problem for all those with nerve
loss. Their self esteem, self worth and confidence that once slithered to
their will soar. They will be able to compete in the world of business,
learning in a classroom setting, earn a degree, start a business whatever
and wherever their dreams take them.
It will also service the needs of slow learners, slow writer, those with
dyslexia. The need for this service to all …. is NOW!
Let’s talk about a few other things of interest
Texting was designed for the deaf to keep in contact and look what
happened to it. That’s all the teenagers do all day long. Everyone …
well almost everyone is texting today. It’s faster. It works. It saves time.
Gregg Shorthand was designed by John Gregg who lost his hearing
and was not ready to let go of life as he once knew it. He taught it to
his wife and she went with him at every meeting and classes and took
dictation for him. He was way ahead of his time. At one time Gregg
shorthand was THE dictation system used by every stenographer in top
level offices. It was considered a high level position for a woman in
those days and her salary was equal to or better than a secretary. The
computers changed that and Gregg shorthand is no longer in use to my
Skype was designed for the deaf and look at where it is today! Who ever
dreamed we’d be able to call someone abroad and talk face to face? It
was a real breakthrough for the deaf to be able to talk to their loved ones
across the country. It is now enjoyed by all.
Captioning is here to stay for all who want it because they can! It truly
belongs in every classroom in every school, community college and
university…..everywhere there is learning such as seminars. Education is
a lifetime pursuit. It will happen…in time. And, that time has arrived!
That is our mission at CaptionsVerbatimPro.com.
See you inside…..
