There is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to providing communication access. At LC Interpreting Services we appreciate the unique needs of Deaf and Hard of Hearing individuals, and are pleased to offer high quality Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) services, also known as Realtime Captioning.
CART is ideal for meetings, lectures, training programs, classrooms, telephone conferences, or other environments where realtime speech-to-text captioning may be the most efficient means of facilitating access for the deaf and hard of hearing.
CART captioners use specialized stenography equipment and software to translate spoken language into written language with incredible speed and accuracy. Captions are displayed on a screen, projector, laptop, or mobile device, and transcripts can be made available after the meeting or event.
If you are seeking speech-to-text transcription with emphasis on accuracy and consumer satisfaction, contact LCIS to provide CART services. Our providers uphold the highest standards of confidentiality and professionalism.
LCIS offers two types of Realtime Captioning Services:
- Projected CART: Captions are created in realtime by a provider utilizing specialized steno software. Text appears directly on the presentation screen or monitor. This is a great option for ensuring all audience members have access to audio content!
- One-to-one CART: This is best when there is only one consumer who needs captioning service, typically in a smaller venue like a classroom. The Realtime Captioning provider translates the spoken word into text and it is live streamed to the consumer’s laptop or mobile device.
