CART (“Computer Aided Real Time” Captioning):
This is a specialized service for consumers that may not know sign language. Adults who have lost hearing later in life or those who are hard of hearing are generally the ones who would utilize CART Services.
This is used mainly in conference or classroom type settings, but our providers can accommodate most any setting needed. The CART provider will bring a Laptop for the Deaf or Hard of hearing consumer to use or the text can be projected on a larger screen if needed.
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 impairment.
