  • Remember to include a DSS syllabus statement on your syllabi.  Sample statements can be cut and pasted from this link.  
  • The Lead Sign Language Interpreter notifies faculty members who have a deaf or hard-of-hearing student in a class so the faculty member is aware that all videos must be captioned.  This includes videos that are shown in class and online.  The captioning request form is available online.
  •  Read&Write is downloadable software that is available for all faculty and students.  Videos on the toolbar teach the viewer how to use the programs.
