Transcriber Services

DSS provides Transcribing services as an alternative for individuals (student, employee or visitor) who may or may not use American Sign Language (ASL).  These services may be provided by trained DSS staff, or may be provided through remote services.  These services are provided for class lectures, labs, discussions, instructor/advisor meetings, commencement, or other course/university functions.  Transcribing for non-academic settings is determined on a case-by-case basis.

  • Current students should provide their schedule and needs to their coordinator.

  • Requests for non-course events should be made a minimum of 48 hours in advance to ensure coverage; later requests cannot be guaranteed. 

  • Instructors with deaf/hard-of-hearing students will receive communication of this service.


When possible, a minimum of 24 hours is necessary for cancellations and should be communicated through DSS to allow for timely notification and cancellation of services.  Without prior notification of a cancellation, transcribers are paid for the class period/event as well as mileage/travel.  After three no-shows with no cancellation notice will result in the suspension of services until the student has met with DSS to review the policies for transcribing services.

To request transcribing services, please complete the Request Interpreter or Transcriber Services Form.

For Deaf or Hard-of-Hearing individuals interested in American Sign Language interpreting services, please refer to Interpreting Services.
