EHDI Program National Goals »

For the convenience of our participants with hearing loss, a real-time web based captioning service is available for CDC EHDI teleconferences. A Caption Writer listens to the spoken comments from the teleconference and immediately types the comments into a computer. By logging into a special website, participants with hearing loss can view the comments as the Caption Writer records them. Users of this caption service can also type their questions or comments directly to the Caption Writer, who in turn will voice these comments to the rest of the teleconference participants. Those interested in using this caption service for the teleconference should email ehdi@cdc.gov with their name and email address to receive the login information for the translation website.
