RAPIDTEXT is a software program that interprets information from a steno machine and translates it into text. In a lecture situation, such as a classroom, a stenographer would translate what is being said onto the steno machine. The information is then translated into English and sent to a computer screen on the desk of a deaf person. If the deaf person wishes to communicate, he may signal the stenographer and then begin typing from the computer keyboard; his message would be received and read by the stenographer. Names of individual speakers may be pre-programmed and recalled by the stenographer. COMPATABILITY: For use on IBM PC computers. SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: At least 640K of memory and a 20 MB hard drive, WordPerfect word processing software (version 5.0 or higher), and a steno machine.
