Onsite & Remote CART

Communication Access Realtime Translation

The translation of the spoken English word instantaneously into English text.

What is CART?

CART is the instantaneous translation of the spoken word into English text, displayed in various formats. English text is produced with less than a two-second delay. 

Onsite CART:

  1. Working onsite, our CART provider sits next to the CART client in a meeting, seminar or training setting and, utilizing the latest realtime technology, combined with a stenograph machine and laptop computer, transcribes all that is heard.
  2. The English text is displayed on the computer screen so the client can read along. With the addition of a projector and screen, CART can be read by as few as two attendees or a room filled with hundreds of attendees.
  3. At the conclusion of every CART job, and at no extra cost to you the client, an e-copy of the transcript is provided. Our clients find these transcripts invaluable when creating meeting minutes, keeping an archive of the meeting or training, or for updating members who were unable to attend.

    Onsite CART can be provided for meetings, conferences, training sessions, civic events and special events, as well as in the classroom.

Remote CART:

Our clients have immediate access to nationally certified and qualified caption providers. Text is streamed via advanced technology from the remote caption writer to the end-user’s device. 

Remote captioning is used in an increasingly wide variety of situations and settings, including:

• Staff Meetings or Trainings
• Educational Settings
• Conferences
• Hospitals
• Live Webcasts
• One-on-one Business Meetings

With remote CART, your costs are reduced by up to 20% when compared to in-person CART. Billable items, such as travel costs and two-hour minimums, are eliminated. Users of remote CART have expressed a greater sense of independence and freedom.
