Jack Boenau has been providing convention reporting services since 1969 and Deanna “Dee” Boenau since 2000.   AmeriCaption provides hard-copy edited transcripts as well as electronic files for archival purposes, and we can provide the client with unedited real-time transcription files periodically throughout the meeting and/or a real-time feed to a tablet or a computer.  Jack and Dee provide this service for unions, small and large conventions, and various industry meetings.

AmeriCaption can also provide communication accessibility for the meeting in the form of real-time captioning or CART (Communication Access Real-time Translation).

Dee was the first closed captioner for the nationally syndicated program “Daytime” from 2006 through December 31, 2014.  As a result of corporate mergers, Riverbank Studios and WFLA were forced to use a different closed captioning company beginning January 1, 2015, because of an existing closed-captioning contract with the new parent company.
