We are committed to serving students who are deaf and hard of hearing in a caring community that encourages personal and professional growth and excellence at every level.
Captionists provide speech-to-text services for students who prefer real time text in the classroom. The captionist will use C-print software to convert instructors’ and students’ spoken language into written text that can be viewed via a laptop screen.

Sign Language Interpreting
Interpreters facilitate communication among instructors, hearing students and deaf students in classes and academically related activities. WKU uses licensed interpreters who can interpret into a variety of sign systems such as American Sign Language and Signed English.
