What Students Say

A legacy of equality.

Having transcription services has completely changed my educational experience. Before, I didn't speak up about being hard of hearing. I was embarrassed and afraid to ask for help. 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.



The interpreters are wonderful here! The interpreting services I've received this semester were essential to my return on campus. I am extremely grateful to the OAS. OAS has been integral to my education at WVU.



Transcribing Services have helped me tremendously in class. I didn't realize how much information I was missing due to my hearing loss. I started using transcribing this past semester and earned the best GPA I've ever had in college!
