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 Provider/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, or CCP. Certification reflects the CART Provider'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.
