Our Essential Role in Communication: Resources That Can Help

May 13, 2020 Academy News

With May as Better Hearing Month, this is an important time to continue to highlight our essential role in communication and hearing health care. 

With this in mind, we have developed information pieces and resources you can use with your patients and/or share with your communities, colleagues, and other health-care providers as you see fit. 

Captioning Options

Here is a helpful list of captioning options you may want to consider.

ZOOM & Microsoft Teams: Live captions can be enabled for video meetings.

Microsoft Office (Powerpoint 365 and Word): Transcribe your words as you present and display them on-screen as captions in the same language or a different language

Google Voice (Google Doc and Google Slides): Use real-type captioning for documents or presentations.

Smartphone Apps: Use Android: Live Transcribe app (Google Play Store; free) or iOS: Notes app (iOS store; free; use mic, don’t type).
