How has your campus handled providing audio (and video) to remote real-time writers? Is this handled by the deaf student using services, or is it the instructor, IT, or someone else?

I'm used to the student placing a call via their personal device (typically Zoom or Skype) with a College-provided omni-directional microphone that amplifies sound. In simple settings with smaller classrooms, this has been effective. This proves to be problematic when an instructor speaks softly, wears a mask, has a heavy accent, or moves about the room while speaking. What solutions have you discovered for this particular challenge?

Hello,

We use Alead blue tooth lapel mics and Zoom. The captioner usually creates the Zoom meeting and the student typically uses their own device. Sometimes I create the Zoom, but only for one-time needs. The lapel mic does require some pedagogical adjustments. For example the instructor needs to repeat or summarize comments or questions from students for the captioner. The mic is given to the student for any small group or similar work.

@bertissimo Would those Alead Bluetooth lapel mics also (simultaneously) provide audio to ALDs?
