Who is a speech-to-text reporter suitable for?

A speech-to-text reporter (also known as a STTR) converts speech into text in real time for people who are deaf or have hearing loss. This type of communication support is most suitable for those who are comfortable reading English on a screen, often quickly and sometimes for extended periods of time.

How to book a speech-to-text reporter

Please provide as many details as possible when you enquire, including:

  • Your contact details and the name of your organisation
  • Name of the person (or people) requiring communication support
  • Whether they require a speech-to-text reporter or you need advice on the best communication professional for their hearing needs
  • Why support is needed, for example a meeting or conference
  • Time, date, location and number of other attendees
  • Duration – One STTR is usually enough but if your assignment is likely to last for more than two hours, we’ll supply two STTRs who will take it in turns.

When we’ve established the above information, we should be able to advise the costs and hourly rates of speech-to-text reporters for your booking (based on a minimum charge of two to three hours).

Ahead of the assignment, we’ll ask you to confirm that a table and electrical socket will be available for the speech-to-text reporting equipment. We’ll also request any background information, technical language, and handouts, as well as video or audio clips to be used on the day.
