InterCall Announces New Conferencing Services for the Deaf and Hard-Of-Hearing
CHICAGO (April 4, 2007)
– InterCall is adding Relay Conference Captioning (RCC) to its audio conferencing services, giving the deaf and hard-of-hearing a voice on conference calls. Participants who select the RCC option see the rest of the group’s comments as they appear on their computer screen and a live “captioner” takes the comments sent from the RCC participants and reads them to the group. The service is available with all of InterCall’s audio offerings.
“About 10 percent of the population has some form of serious hearing loss, which can be a large number of employees in a major company,” said Scott Etzler, president of InterCall. “We’re creating a better connection so more people can take advantage of the benefits that come with conferencing.”
InterCall also offers One Way Text Streaming for participants who are hard-of-hearing but can be the voice for themselves. For more information go to http://rcc.intercall.com/
