As an alternative to on-site CART services, TCS Interpreting and Captioning also provides remote CART services. It can be used in many of the same situations but without a CART provider present at your event's location. By having these captioning services, it accomplishes another step toward equitable access for everyone.
What is Remote CART?
Remote Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) is similar to on-site CART services, with the main difference being that the provider is connected to the event in two ways. To hear the speaker, they listen via the phone or internet, allowing them to translate the spoken word through their stenotype machine.
Once the text is written and translated to standard English by the software, we stream it to devices used by those attending the meeting or convention. The stream can be viewed both at the event in person or even remotely, as long as the device is connected to the internet. TCS Interpreting and Captioning utilizes a high-speed network for remote CART services, providing instant access with almost no delay.
What are the Benefits of Remote CART?
CART reporters are incredibly efficient at their job, typing around 260 words per minute with extreme accuracy. This will allow everyone to get the full experience without feeling left behind. Some examples of who can benefit from remote CART services include:
- Deaf individuals
- Those who speak English as a second language
- The elderly
- People who are hard-of-hearing
