There was a time when the hearing disabled were not part of so many activities; whether it is educational, entertainment, business or be it anything else. Then came remote captioning and suddenly the whole world changed for the people who were "disabled" and made them "enabled" in all spheres of society.
The benefit of remote captioning will be perhaps better understood with the help of examples. Take the deaf student. Till a few years ago he or she had to rely on note takers. Today, all they need to do is have a laptop or any handheld device with an internet connection and they will be able to see the captions on the screen with a time difference of a mere few seconds. This naturally means that these students can be as much a part of an active discussion as any other who can hear.
The most amazing part of remote captioning is that the "stenocaptioner" who is listening to the lecture or the speaker need not be in the same room or even in the same city or country; he or she can be sitting in any part of the world and yet be able to provide excellent captioning services and enabling thousands of hearing disabled to lead an almost normal life.The text so downloaded via the Internet is referred to as "streamed text".
Today technology has become so advanced that the hearing disabled can even make use of this facility on the go with the help of their mobile devices.
Today a lot of universities provide this facility as a part of inclusive education. The acronyms to look out for in universities that provide this facility is LRC which stands for live remote captioning and CART which stands for communication access realtime translation.
Remote captioning is done in the same language and thus there is no need to translate the spoken words which saves time and enables the deaf students to enjoy and enrich their lives with a more complete and enhanced educational experience.
The student can go back and refer to the captions as many times as he or she wishes so that there is complete understanding of the topic are subject under discussion.
If there is ever a need to arrange for remote captioning service in a short time; it can be easily done as there are a number of online captioning service providers. Since this service need not be restricted to any particular geographic location; there is always bound to be a service provider who is willing to respond instantly to your needs.

Eh not so much. Cochlear implants have been in place for nearly a decade. Universities/colleges are also increasingly setting up frequency modulation systems that isolate and amplify lecturers to distinguish them from background noise.
