Having real-time captioning at WisCon was super helpful to me, and I'm not HoH/Deaf. I may have to suggest that physics conferences consider doing the same...

Cool. I'd love to read why it was helpful, if you want to share.

Particularly at the GoH speeches, I was way in the back of the room, so it was a bit difficult to hear.

I came in slightly late to Hiromi Goto's speech -- I'd been in the lobby and my legs refused to do the thing where they held my weight -- and so having the previous couple lines on screen allowed me to get more context. And if I missed a word or two (because I was in the very back of the room), it was on screen. I found it much improved the speeches for me.

All those things are relevant to me as well: when turning the TV up really loud stopped making the dialog more intelligible, I turned on the captions—that was around 8 years ago.

I work for a captioning company in Australia, it's definitely on the rise. They can't keep up with demand training stenos, I'm actually a voice-rec software respeaker (it's a bit less accurate, but easier). I've captioned quite a few university lectures, but no conventions so far - it's a great idea though!

I'm an AT geek and I'm curious how you train to do respeaking with voice recognition. Can you point me somewhere so I don't fill up this thread with boring questions?

Oh, I don't know, I just sort of stumbled into the job, you'd be googling as well as me! I don't mind answering questions, though.
