CART Captioning-COMMUNICATION ACCESS REALTIME TRANSLATION

CART captioning is a word-for-word, speech-to-text translation service, using closed-captioning technology, for people who need visual communication access. Unlike computerized note-taking or abbreviation systems, which summarize information for consumers, CART captioning provides a complete translation of all spoken words, which allows consumers to decide for themselves what information is important to them. CART captioning consumers include people with hearing loss, individuals with cognitive or motor challenges, people who wish to improve reading/language skills and those with other communication barriers. A CART captionist uses a steno machine, real-time software and laptop computer to render instant speech-to-text translation on a computer monitor or other display to benefit an individual consumer or a larger group in any number of settings: classrooms; business, government and educational functions; courtrooms, hospitals, religious, civic, cultural, recreation or entertainment events; telephone conferences or on-line webinars. Text files are available. Services may be performed on-site or from a remote location via the Internet.
