Captioning / CART

Communication Access Real-time Translation (CART) is the instant translation of the spoken word into English text using stenotype machine, notebook computer and real-time software.  The text appears on a computer monitor or other display.

This technology is primarily used by people who are deaf or hard of hearing, or who are learning English as a second language.  The Americans with Disabilities Act specifically recognized CART as an assistive technology which affords "effective communication access."  Thus communication access more aptly describes a CART provider's role and distinguishes CART from real-time reporting in a traditional litigation setting.
