TypeWell

TypeWell Logo TypeWell

TypeWell is a system for capturing spoken content and generating an immediate meaning-for-meaning transcript.

Using advanced abbreviation software, a trained TypeWell transcriber synthesizes the essence of the discussion in clear English text. This form of communication access is commonly used by individuals with hearing loss or who need additional support.

The transcriber can work in the classroom or meeting room or can be located off-site. The recipient (commonly called "the reader") simultaneously sees the transcript using a standard Web browser on a mobile device, such as a laptop, tablet, smartphone, or e-reader.
