Video: How does RCC Work?

Take a look at how two people use RCC for a conference call:  Ava, who prefers to communicate via typing, and James, who prefers to speak for himself.


Option 1: If you prefer to communicate via typing

  • 1

    The captioner joins the audio bridge, then listens and transcribes the event (conference call, video meeting or webinar).

  • 2

    You read the captions on a computer, laptop, tablet or mobile device.

  • 3

    To add your comments/ questions to the discussion, type in the “Message to Captioner” text box and send it.

  • 4

    The captioner reads aloud your comments/questions at the earliest break in the discussion.  Your words appear on the real-time streaming display.


Option 2: If you prefer to speak for yourself

  • 1

    For a conference call, you can join the audio bridge using a phone.  For a video meeting or webinar, if the audio is included in the webinar, simply join the webinar.  If audio is on a separate bridge, join the audio bridge using a microphone on a computer, laptop, tablet or mobile device.  The captioner will also join the audio bridge, listens and transcribe the event.

  • 2

    You read the captions on a computer, laptop, tablet or mobile device.

  • 3

    To add your comments/ questions, you speak directly to the other attendees via the audio bridge.  Your words appear on the real-time streaming display.
