    5. Be The Change: From classrooms to communities, we’re making noise for equal access.
    6. Always Improving: Communication changes, and so do we. Keeping it real and relevant.
    7. We’ve Got Your Back: Need info or help with speech-to-text? Look no further!

These beliefs guide our every action, decision, and initiative. Together, we’re advancing communications without barriers


ATSP is looking for volunteers

We need board members to help us run our little organization. Do you have ideas on how to build a community for TypeWell and C-Print providers, clients, and their families? Do you want or have any non-profit experience? Do you or anyone you know have legal experience? If you’ve answered yes to any of those questions, we would love to have you join our Board. We are a group of like-minded, highly motivated individuals who have a lot of ideas and passion. We are looking for members who can match and direct that passion with focus, as we move forward with our rebranded organization into 2024. Please email us your resume and a cover letter: info@atspnetwork.org. We look forward to hearing from you!

What People Have to Say

Tiara Waters

“Having transcription services has completely changed my educational experience…. It’s so nice being able to know what’s going on around me. I wouldn’t be able to participate or learn as effectively without the transcribers. For that, I am so thankful. Thank you for making being successful within my grasp.”

Ben Capellan

“I am an oral deaf student in a mainstream high school. I have had a TypeWell transcriber that transcribes all my classes in real time since 5th grade. Without TypeWell I would not have access to my education and would not be heading to college. My transcribers are my ears!!! Thank you TypeWell.”

Mary Gerard

Director of Accessibility Resources, Bellingham Technical College

TypeWell is a resource students can depend on – they actively use the transcripts sent by their transcriber to create their own study strategies. And in the moment, students are able to read along and follow important aspects of class discussion and instructor guidance.”
