Relay Conference Captioning (RCC)

Relay Conference Captioning (RCC) is a free service for anyone who is deaf or hard of hearing to engage in group conversations in a videoconference, multi-party conference call or webinar. Using the same high-quality captioners that produce closed captioning for television, RCC users receive live, real-time text streamed to a computer connected to the Internet anywhere.

Classrooms or Face-to-Face Meetings

  • Read captions of what is said during classes or face-to-face meetings on your laptop, tablet, or mobile device with a high-speed Internet connection.
  • Schedule your request to participate in meetings with RCC!

How to schedule the RCC service

  1. Make an appointment at least 48 hours (two working days) in advance to guarantee the service.
