Request from Carla:
Hi Everyone,
Does anyone have information or suggestions for in class electronic note taking or captioning to use with elementary and secondary students? We are in the process of setting up recycled computers with 2 monitors to use with deaf and hard of hearing students for in class aptioning and note taking. I need information to train interpreters or education assistants how to take the notes as they are not trained captionists.
