    • Conference call – get the teleconference bridge phone number and access code, if needed.

    • Video meeting – get the video meeting URL, conference ID and password, if needed.

    • Webinar – get the dial-in phone number, access code, if needed, and/or webinar URL.

  • Reserve RCC at least 48 hours in advance (two business days).
    We will make our best effort to cover events requested with less than 2 business days notice, but that cannot be guaranteed. 


Step 2:

    • For a conference call, enter the teleconference bridge phone number in the “Teleconference Phone Number” field.

    • For a video meeting, enter 000-000-0000 in the “Teleconference Phone Number” field and the video meeting URL, conference ID and password, if needed, in the “Event Notes” field.

    • For a webinar, enter the teleconference bridge phone number in the “Teleconference Phone Number” field and the webinar URL in the “Web Conference URL (Optional)” field, if desired.

  • For a transcript of the captioned event, select the options on the online RCC reservation form prior to submitting your request.

  • Within one business day, you will receive an RCC confirmation email with the RCC event confirmation number and link.  Save this RCC confirmation email.


Step 3:

  • Approximately 10 minutes prior to the event, the captioner will join the audio bridge and be ready to caption.

  • When you are ready to join your event, click on the link in your RCC confirmation email.

  • Begin reading the captions.

  • To speak directly to the other attendees during the event, join the audio bridge. Otherwise, use the “Message to Captioner” text box on the bottom of the RCC screen.
