CART Services / Captioning
(Communication Access Real-time Translation)
CART/captioning can be used in a variety of settings including but not limited to classrooms, legal settings, courtrooms, public events, public broadcasts, and meetings.
SCInterpreters offer Communication Access Real-time Translation services to Pittsburgh and the surrounding areas.
CART providers produce an instant verbatim translation of the spoken word into English text for display. This is done by using a laptop computer with real-time software and a stenotype machine. The text can be displayed on the reporter’s laptop or projected onto a screen for larger audiences.
Section 36.303 of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) recognizes CART specifically as assistive technology.
They are not many resources for CART, unfortunately, but lucky for you we are one of the largest!
