What is CART?
CART (Communication Access Real-Time Translation) also referred to as realtime captioning or live-event captioning, is a way to transcribe the spoken word into readable English text using a stenograph machine, computer, and realtime software. The text appears on a computer monitor or other display and serves as an important communication tool for those who are deaf, hard of hearing, or learning English as a second language.CART provides a complete translation of all spoken words and environmental sounds for the benefit of an individual consumer or large group in a variety of settings. CART can be provided onsite or remote via the Internet.
As shown by the example on the right, CART provides a verbatim translation of all spoken words, empowering the consumer to decide for themselves what information is important to them.
