Overview

A transcriber trained in the “Typewell Program” provides access to live lectures and class material in real time for Deaf and Hard of Hearing students.  A transcriber attends USU classes in person and over Zoom and types out what is heard concept for concept.  This includes both the professor’s lecture and any student comments.  A transcribers schedule is based on student requests so the hours will be consistent but not in blocks of time.  There is some schedule flexibility. The transcriber will report to a supervisor and be part of the transcriber team. 

Responsibilities

A transcriber provides speech-to-text communication access for USU students during classes. A transcriber does this by listening to what is said during a conversation, lecture, or presentation and typing a meaning-for-meaning transcript of what is heard. A transcriber must be able to attend classes in person and remotely depending on the class type.  The qualified candidate will be trained in the Type well program and must use this program with competence.

Qualifications

  • Type at least 65 wpm.
  • Pass grammar, typing, and listening tests to qualify for an interview.
  • Commit to four Fall/Spring semesters to qualify for the training.
    • Paid training to be completed by December 2021.
