October 12, 2000: Remote Realtime Online Captioning Service
The North Dakota Center for Persons with Disabilities has announced the availability of the Remote Realtime Online Captioning Service. The service offers accommodation for people with a wide variety of learning, language, and hearing disabilities. The remote realtime captioning system needs no third party software, encoders or dual phone lines to work. Everything is transferred over the Internet with specially designed software. The speaker (teacher, lecturer, presenter) uses a wireless lapel microphone which transmits audio to a computer. The computer digitizes the audio and transmits it over the Internet to a remote captionist who transcribes it and sends it back to the presentation location where it is projected on the user's computer screen.

April 27, 2000: American Social Health Association Announces a New Web Site for TTY Users
The American Social Health Association (ASHA), which operates the CDC National STD & AIDS Hotlines (CDC NSTDAH), is pleased to announce a new Web site for TTY users. The web site allows individuals to view videotaped answers to the hotline's most frequently asked questions about HIV/AIDS in American Sign Language (ASL). "In health education we often talk about the importance of 'speaking the individual's language.' That is exactly what this web site does" asserts Chad Ludwig, NSTDAH TTY Supervisor. "ASL is the first language of the majority of Deaf Americans. English, which has different syntax and grammatical rules, is most often a secondary language and therefore is not the most effective means of communicating important messages," says Ludwig. Books, brochures and pamphlets written in English often miss the mark when it comes to providing clear and accurate HIV prevention information to the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (HOH).

March 1, 2000: The American Social Health Association Announces Enhanced STD and AIDS Services for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing
The American Social Health Association, (ASHA), announces enhanced STD and AIDS service for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. ASHA which for years has operated the National AIDS Hotline (CDC NAH) and the National STD Hotline (CDC NSTDH) separately under contract with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is pleased to have this opportunity to provide both bodies of information in one call. While the CDC NAH has had a dedicated TTY (teletype) service for the Deaf and hard-of- hearing since 1988 STD information has not been available via a national hotline service. "The lack of available information for the Deaf and hard-of-hearing has been a major hurdle in slowing infection rates within these communities," says Chad Ludwig, Senior Supervisor of the newly integrated TTY service at the CDC National STD & AIDS Hotlines. As a member of the Deaf community I am thrilled about this enhancement!" The CDC National AIDS Hotline provides service in English, Spanish and via TTY, and the CDC National STD Hotline offers information in English. This integration is part of a four-phased project which began in November of 1999 when the CDC NAH Spanish service integrated STD information and referrals into their scope of service. According to Lourdes Suarez, Manager of the CDC NAH Spanish and TTY services, as well as Interim Manager of the CDC NSTDH this dual approach affords callers a higher level of service. "The integration of information and referrals allows our Health Communication Specialists to provide more complete information to callers, by addressing sexual health in a more well-rounded fashion. HIV is an STD. Other STDs can impact the likelihood of becoming infected with HIV. Providing this information in a more holistic format just makes sense!" The last phases of the Hotline integration will take place in April and August of this year with enhancements to the Hotlines' e-mail system and integration of the two English Services. The CDC National STD and AIDS Hotlines provide free, confidential and anonymous information, education and referrals to callers with STD & AIDS related questions. The hotline's TTY service is staffed by Health Communication Specialists who are skilled in American Sigh Language, English and Spanish. The TTY service is available 10:00AM - 10:00PM (Eastern Time), Monday - Friday, including holidays. A taped message provides information about HIV and AIDS at all other times. ASHA operates the CDC National AIDS Hotline, the CDC National STD Hotline, and the CDC National Immunization Information Hotline under contract with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Founded in 1914, ASHA is a nonprofit organization dedicated solely to the prevention and control of all sexually transmitted diseases. Its mission is to stop STDs and their harmful consequences to individuals, families and communities.

January 10, 2000: Center for International Rehabilitation Research Information and Exchange (CIRRIE)
The Center for International Rehabilitation Research Information and Exchange (CIRRIE) is in the process of developing a free international research database that will be operational by May 2000. Users will be able to locate research in their field by country through the CIRRIE website (http://cirrie.buffalo.edu). This database will provide valuable assistance to U.S. rehabilitation research conference organizers, funded by the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitation Services (OSERS), who are trying to establish an international component within domestic conferences by involving eminent colleagues from other countries. Similarly, CIRRIE will assist research organizations in other countries to sponsor rehabilitation experts from the U.S. to speak at their conferences. In both cases, CIRRIE will provide airfare, while the hosting institution will be responsible for meals, lodging, and other travel expenses. CIRRIE also supports the use of tele-conferencing to enable researchers in the U.S. to present at conferences in other conferences, and vice versa. CIRRIE support is available for visits related to planning, conducting, or preparing research, lecturing, providing technical assistance, and similar forms of collaboration. The CIRRIE website will provide an electronic bulletin board and discussion groups (Rehab Talk) on the various areas of rehabilitation research, providing a forum for researchers from the U.S. to remain engaged with researchers in other countries on a regular basis. Further information on all of CIRRIE programs, including the Travel Grant Application Form, can be found on CIRRE's website. Hard copies of CIRRIE materials or materials in alternate formats are available upon request.
