Does Zoom.us and or Bluejeans.com provide linking with TypeWell Transcriber?
If not, is the integrated version of Everywhere useable with these? We are seeking an expert transcriptionist opinion on which one to suggest for faculty use.
Below is the response that one of our clients (also from your institution) received from Zoom.us and forwarded to us. This response from Zoom was dated January 5, 2017:
I asked around our office and unfortunately at this time we don’t have any supported closed-captioning systems aside from having a fellow user type out responses. I know we have several request in to include a speech-to-text feature in zoom, but nothing as of this time has been created. Should we implement on, it should show up here: http://blog.zoom.us for new product and feature announcements.

As for BlueJeans.com, a quick search on their site for “accessibility” resulted in this article, which does mention “hearing impairment” but doesn’t talk about real-time speech-to-text support:

I’ll forward your message to our users’ Google Groups as well, and ask them to reply to your question here if they have anything else to contribute.
