Electronic Notetaker

An Electronic Notetaker may provide communication support for deaf or hard of hearing people who are comfortable reading English at high speed producing a real-time summary of what is said using an ordinary laptop computer.


The Electronic Notetaker have the ability to touch type to a minimum 60 wpm onto a laptop, have excellent spelling and punctuation and a depth of knowledge and understanding of notetaking for disabled students.


They are most common in Schools, Colleges and Universities, but are also used at work, on training courses and at other events. At the end of a meeting or event, the Electronic Notetaker should provide a copy of the transcript by email, hard copy or memory stick.


Electronic notetaking does not produce a full verbatim (word for word) account of what has been said. If this is what you need, you should use a speech-to-text reporting service.
