FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TTE Transcripts Worldwide, Ltd. Offers Captioning Solutions for Health Care Practitioners, Companies, and Organizations
SCHAUMBURG, Ill., July 23, 2014 – A valuable tool for many health care providers, telehealth is increasingly becoming part of the conversation and overall strategy of health care delivery. Yet, for the person who is deaf or hard-of-hearing, telehealth and telemedicine advancements can pose a unique accessibility challenge. TTE Transcripts Worldwide, Ltd. offers captioning solutions to help health care practitioners, companies, and organizations make telehealth options accessible for those with hearing impairments.
As a business owner, TTE CEO Terry Thompson knows the value of maximizing the resources and tools you invest in to provide efficient and effective services. As a health care consumer, she also knows the value of health care providers who do all they can to make a difference in people’s lives. Captioning solutions benefit practitioners, companies, organizations, and patients. “Why limit yourself?” Thompson says. “Captioning gives you a broader outreach, increases the usability of the technology you’ve invested in, and expands your priority of consumer accessibility and satisfaction.”
For more than two decades TTE Transcripts Worldwide, an industry leader in transcription excellence, has been putting the spoken word in print. In 2013 the company announced the addition of captioning to its suite of services and products. TTE’s experience in working remotely with clients and the company’s portfolio of real-time and post-production projects across a wide range of industries, including clients in the medical field, laid a great foundation for the addition of captioning services.
For the patient and health care provider connecting remotely, real-time captioning during a virtual meeting, consultation, office visit, or check-up increases accessibility and communication when one of the participants has a hearing loss. Adding captions offline, or in post-production, to audio and video educational materials designed to be accessed through the Cloud or on the Web not only helps keep the patient informed, but also makes valuable follow-up information and instructions accessible. Thompson sees captioning as one of the next practical steps of accessibility on the telehealth and telemedicine frontier and is excited to offer captioning solutions to the health care community. “I’m glad that TTE is able to offer captioning as a communication bridge for those who have a hearing impairment and want to take advantage of telehealth for their medical needs,” Thompson says.
