Got a panel? Live onsite stenography is by far the most accurate way to caption a panel discussion/session.
Panel discussions, and panel sessions at conferences, are very popular. An onsite stenographer can see the speakers so can accurately designate who is speaking. This cannot accurately be done with remote captioning as it is sometimes hard to tell when the speaker changes when captioning remotely. This leads to speakers not only being wrongly designated but often not given names at all. Not being able to accurately name speakers does not help caption users at the time and does not provide an accurate transcript after the event either.
Panel discussions – it’s where we shine brightest. ★
