Hearing Impaired Transcription Services

For video resources for the hearing impaired, Speechpad's transcription services are available to transcribe video content into readable text or closed captions. Transcriptions can be ordered directly via the website where this service has not already been performed. Rebates for this service may be possible. In some cases, the YouTube version of a video will already have the audio transcribed to text so please check there first before ordering new transcriptions.
