Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) offers immediate, verbatim, streaming voice-to-text translation at events, conferences, classes, public hearings and other events. CART/remote CART provides access to these events for deaf and hard of hearing viewers, those for whom English is not their primary language or other attendees who might have difficulty hearing.
Captions can be presented to a single participant on a mobile device, tablet or laptop or on a large screen via a projector for the whole audience.
Remote CART can be successfully utilized in many settings:
How does remote CART work?
Remote CART is very simple to use. First, we need to hear what's being said in the classroom or meeting room. This can be done using a Skype session, webinar or a conference line.
Our experienced real-time captioners will "translate" the audio to text in real time using a stenography machine. The text is securely streamed over the internet to a web-enabled computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone where it can be viewed discretely in real time.
As the audio is being captioned, it is displayed in real time in a browser window on a PC, laptop, smartphone or other web-enabled device. Our fully configurable viewing window allows users to format their captioned text for optimum viewing in addition to taking notes and communicating with their captioner in our built in chat window!
