New Audio Conferencing Services for the Deaf and Hard-Of-Hearing
McLean, VA - July 9, 2007 - Communiqué Conferencing, Inc., the world leader in audio and Web conferencing services, announced today that the company 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 Communiqués 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 Adelphi Kennedy, Director of Communications for Communiqué Conferencing." “We’re creating a better connection so more people can take advantage of the benefits that come with conferencing.”
