Communication Accessible Real-Time Captions are produced in real-time, converting speech to text in real-time listening to the speech of the speaker.

There are two types of CART Captions
On-site CART captioning can have a significant impact on individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing by providing real-time access to spoken content. CART captioning involves a trained professional, known as a CART provider, who uses specialized equipment to transcribe spoken language into text in real-time.
On-Site Captions are captions provided on-site, where the certified captioners visit the venue, listen to every word uttered by the speakers, and effectively convert them to words.
Remote CART captioning is a service that provides real-time captions for individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing, similar to on-site CART captioning. However, instead of having a CART provider physically present at the location, remote CART captioning is delivered through an internet connection, allowing access to live captions from anywhere.

This direct communication enhances efficiency, fosters better understanding, and promotes effective interactions in various personal and professional settings.
Another advantage of CART captioning is the ability to record and save the captions for later review. This feature allows individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing to revisit the content at their own pace, ensuring they don’t miss any crucial information. It facilitates better retention of the material and provides a valuable resource for studying or referencing important discussions or presentations.
