What is CART?
Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) is an instant conversion of the spoken word into text. The text appears instantly on a computer monitor or projected to a large screen.
CART Captioning benefits people with all degrees of hearing loss.
A CART Captioner uses a steno machine, realtime software, and computer to render instant speech-to-text translation on a computer monitor or other display for the benefit of an individual user or larger group in a variety of settings.
Specially-trained court reporters perform CART Captioning services. To receive the highest quality product, users should consider hiring a Certified CART Provider Captioner, or CCP. Certification reflects the CART Captioner's extra training and dedication to the community.
CART is also referred to as Realtime Captioning. The difference is CART is a full screen of text; Realtime Captioning contains text with a video picture.
