CART (“Computer Aided Real Time” Captioning):
This is a service again for consumers that may not know sign language. This is used mainly in conference or classroom type settings. The CART provider will bring a Laptop for the Deaf or Hard of hearing consumer to use. The provider will then type the information that is being said and it will go across the screen on the laptop. (much like the captioning on the television) They can often adjust the color and size of the lettering for clients that might have impaired vision as well as hearing. In the case of using a CART provider for a conference or all day assignment…they would not require a team.
