Some people will also use notetakers in addition to, or instead of, communication support. Sometimes a Deaf or Hard of Hearing person may not use sign language, so prefer to have written notes. Often, a Deaf person will need both a CSW / Interpreter and a Notetaker because it is impossible to take notes and watch a CSW / Interpreter sign at the same time. This means booking two people.

All of our Notetakers are specially trained in preparing notes for BSL users. Notes can either be handwritten (Manual) or on a laptop (Electronic Note-taker).
