Communication Access Real-time Translation (CART) is the instant translation of the spoken word into English text using a stenotype machine, notebook computer, and realtime software. The text appears on a computer monitor or other larger display. This technology is primarily used by people who are late-deafened, oral deaf, hard-of-hearing or have cochlear implants.
CART services can be used in many situations. CART services are used in group meetings, legislative hearings, workshops, classroom settings, on-the-job training, advisory council or board meetings, court proceedings, and so on. CART services can also be used in job interviews, supervisor/employee meetings, doctor appointments, meetings with lawyers and other professionals, in school, in adult-education settings, in therapy sessions, in church and so on. CART can be performed on-site or remotely.
The Captioning Group provides remote CART services. With the expanding ease of internet and wireless connectivity, captioning can be relayed simply from a remote location to an on-site computer or projector. Whether you require captioning for an audience of one or an auditorium of many, TCG can work with you to find a solution that fits your specific needs.
