What is C-Print?  And what would I do as a C-Print Speech-to-Text Service Provider? 

C-Print is a speech-to-text system utilized in the classroom to provide students who are Deaf or hard of hearing real-time access to spoken information.  The C-Print Speech-to-Text Service Provider attends classes and types what the instructor and students are saying on a laptop using phonetic based abbreviations that expand to full English words.  The student who is Deaf or hard of hearing reads (as it is happening) what the instructors and students are saying on another laptop computer.
