I'm in the UK and I'm sure that as long as the used langauge is English you can use this anywhere in the world.
I've been using Bee Communications, they offer a web based service of STTR - Speech To Text Relay - the way it works I connect on Skype and the opertaor can listen to what is being said in a meeting and I follow the text on a web browser.
I had already operators from USA/Canada and UK ... so ... It can be from anywhere to everywhere, the only thing you need is a common language.+Sarah Perez
surely it's not free as you're using a live service provided by someone. Even so, for those here in the UK you do have a governamental grant to support disable people in the workplace. The name of this grant is Access to Work.
Since I've lost all my hearing due to bilateral Meniere Dicease, this type of support is essential to keep up with management meetings.+Naomi Black
this is truly awesome! Tow weeks ago I've tried to use the STTR support for a hangout and the operator had an extremely difficulty to keep up with what was being said. As most people didn't use micros or had the sound so high that indeed was causing feedback.
I cannot stress enough how much this means to deaf and hard hearing people, it includes us in a tool that is very useful and efficient not only for work but also for pleasure.
So thumbs up Gogole+ and the all team!!
I've just tried to use ... but maybe it's not roll out in the UK yet!!
