Interpreters are provided for semester length classes, conferences, meetings with professors, and other activities that require student participation. Requests for interpreters must be made as far in advance as possible to ensure availability for an event.

Real-Time Captioning

Real-time captioning is a computer assisted note taking which provides a "live" printout of the lecture. This service is provided to Deaf/Hard of Hearing students who do not access the educational environment via manual communication methods (American Sign Language, Conceptually Accurate Signed English, Cued American English, etc.) or in classes that are highly technical.

Visitors on Campus

The U of U provides interpreters, real-time captioning and assistive listening devices for deaf and hard-of-hearing visitors on campus attending U of U sponsored activities. A fee is charged for accommodations for activities not sponsored by the U of U but being held on campus.
