We thought about using Skype, too.  Glad to hear it is working for
someone else.

We have a wireless mic attached to the student laptop, who is on Skype
with the transcriber.  the student places the mic centrally.  Works well
if the professor has a loud voice.  If not, we mic the professor too.
The student operates it himself on his own laptop.  We own only the
mics.

Hi All - 

  

We have a deaf student who needs live transcription of lectures AND of
fellow students in the classroom.  The transcribers are off-site.  

  

The complication we have is that for podcasting purposes, we optimize
the faculty audio and lower the room microphones (so we don't pick up
the clicking on keyboards).  However, that doesn't work well for the
off-site transcribers, who need to hear the students' answers and
questsions, so we've had to increase the room audio.  

  

What are other law schools doing? 

  

Thanks.
