I agree. It also seems that it would be easier to find the diagrams electronically and have showing on a monitor in front of the student, perhaps with a Letter designating each part of the diagram making it easier for the interpreter to refer to them.

I would think the professor would be the best source for diagrams of the systems that will be discussed in each class. That way you'll be sure that the structures that will be mentioned are the ones in the diagram. At least mostly!

We have student who uses in-class ASL interpreters taking an Anatomy & Physiology class this semester. Much of the medical terminology is extremely time-consuming to translate, so the interpreters have asked for assistance in creating visual aids that will allow them to keep up with the pace of the instructor's spoken lecture.

I’m currently chasing up sources for high resolution images (of the labeled anatomical diagrams we need) that are suitable for enlarged print. Before I start “re-inventing the wheel” I wanted to reach out to my fellow ATHEN-ites to see if anyone else has ever had a similar situation. If so, how did you provide visual aids to the interpreters?

Thanks! Happy Friday!
