Not necessarily. Because individuals may use different mobile devices or computers, TypeWell features a variety of linking methods to adapt to any setting.
On-site TypeWell services do not necessarily require an Internet connection. The reader's device (such as an iPad) can receive the transcript over the Internet or directly from the transcriber's laptop. Where WiFi is not readily available, the transcriber can create a virtual access point from a computer and broadcast the transcript to any WiFi-enabled device.
Remote TypeWell services do require a reliable Internet connection, either wired or wireless.
