Dual Accommodations: Using Interpreters and Speech-to-Text Services

Providing interpreting and speech-to-text services is a commonplace accommodation in settings where an audience is comprised of several individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing who rely on different communication modes (e.g., ASL, lip reading, etc.). This type of accommodation most often occurs at large magnet events such as conferences. Dual accommodation for an individual student in a postsecondary setting occurs less frequently, but is appropriate under certain circumstances.
