palantype transcription service.

Pearl Linguistics offers a high quality Palantype translation services.

Palantype is a method of machine shorthand used to provide a verbatim (word for word) transcript of meetings. A Palantype operator records speech on a special Palantype keyboard which then appears instantly on a television monitor or, for large meetings or conferences, on a large screen. Words are recorded by the Palantype operator how they sound rather than how they are spelt. The computer changes these coded word sounds back into English and this is what appears on the screen for the deaf or hard-of-hearing person to read.
