ARC and it's affiliates have been providing real-time, CART and post production captioning services for over 30 years.
Real-Time Closed Captioning
Real-Time Closed Captions are created live when a trained captioner, using a stenograph machine, translates the spoken words and displays them as text on the screen at the time of broadcast.
ARC provides real-time closed captioning services for live events such as newscasts, weather coverage, sporting events, emergency or breaking news, government meetings, church services and more.
We use only experienced, certified broadcast captioners for all of our assignments.
Communication Access Real-Time Translation (CART)
ARC provides CART for events that require the live translation of the spoken word into text.
CART, often called captioning, can be viewed on a mobile device, tablet, laptop computer, television monitor or large screen, any device with an internet connection. CART is widely used in classrooms, teleconferences, meetings, webinars, seminars, conferences, training sessions and church services.
CART enables people who are hard of hearing or deaf, as well as non-native English speakers and others equal access to fully and actively participate in discussions by reading the English text displayed.
Archive can connect to Collaborate, Webex, GoToMeeting and many other services.
