Speech-to-Text Services Associate
This is a new program
developed by the D/HH program to satisfy two aims:
- To provide support
to new DHH Staff members who are learning C-Print
- To increase the pool
of available freelance/LTEs by supervising the training and skill
development of those interested service providers outside of our staff.
The STAMP Program would operate
on three levels:
- Observation only
- As we do for
interpreting students, Speech-to-Text Service Providers (STSPs) would
offer a list of classes they have available for observation.
- This list is
provided to the UWM ITP and/or to students in the ASL Studies Program.
- The list could
also be provided through a web link on the DHH home page for other
- D/HH Staff
- New DHH staff
members would intern in the Fall semester.
- Non-D/HH interns
Expectations of the intern:
- The Spring semester
would be open to non-DHH staff members. The number of interns accepted
would depend on staff availability for mentoring.
- This mentoring would
be provided free of charge to the intern. The intern would not be
compensated for their time. The intern would need to invest their
own money into the C-Print online training (approximately $250).
- The mentorship would
conclude with the DHH mentor recommending the intern into the UWM DHH
LTE C-Print service provider pool.
- The ability to type
60+ words per minute.
- The ability to hear
- Good English skills.
- Commitment to
completion of the C-Print online training modules.
- Commitment to the
internship process which lasts all of Spring semester.
participation outside of UWM to develop skills
- Weekly meetings
with the UWM Mentor
- Willingness to be part of the UWM
freelance/LTE pool of C-Print STSPs if so recommended.
