"We've been using ACSCaptions to provide real-time captioning for our monthly staff meeting for a while now and I just love their services. From our very first contact with Valerie who is the perfect "face" for the company to TJ holding my hand as I practiced setting up my screen for the first meeting, to the excellent on time captioning and timely transcripts, I just couldn't be more pleased. I am so grateful for their excellent, professional service and the way that they allow me to provide real-time access to my staff meeting for our deaf and hard of hearing contractors. Thank you ACSCaptions!"
