What is CART Captioning?
You’ve heard of CART captioning, but what is it exactly? First, CART stands for Communication Access Realtime Translation. CART captioning is a service where trained captioners translate the spoken word into captions that appear in realtime for participants at an event, meeting, or any other type of social setting. This speech to text translation can be viewed on any device, of any size, in any place.
There are two types of CART real time captioning services. On-site CART captioning services involve sending a trained caption service professional to a venue to conduct CART real time captioning in person. Remote CART services involve utilizing a professional caption service provider who is located off site. This allows for the CART captioning professional to provide captions from anywhere in the world. All that is needed is access to audio and an internet connection.
Total Caption is comprised of highly trained caption service providers with decades of experience providing on-site CART captioning and remote CART services. We have the expertise and flexibility to work one-on-one with small groups or with large audiences with thousands of participants. While CART captioning has become one of the most widely accepted methods for complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act for individuals with hearing loss, it has also become extremely popular for those without hearing challenges since captions can help everyone enjoy a more fulfilling experience.
