Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) services are provided by trained court reporters, like Peak Captioning founder Traci Walker, RPR-RMR-CRR-CRC. With over 30 years in a legal setting as a court reporter and stenographer, she has spent her career in the industry as a trainer, manager and consultant.
Peak Captioning has the knowledge and experience to provide high-quality, accurate CART services for your business or organization.
What is CART?
CART stands for Communication Access Realtime Translation, which uses a stenotype machine, computer and realtime software to instantly translate speech into readable text, which can be enlarged to make it easier to read.
That text can be displayed instantly on a computer monitor or projected on a screen at an on-site event, displayed as captions to accompany a video presentation, or through other transmission and display systems. Accuracy is obviously important, and Traci recently placed with 97% accuracy in the 2019 National Realtime Contest.
Peak Captioning also has the capability to provide a copy of the streaming text to clients. With the shift to online meetings and events, we can deliver CART services both in-person and remotely.
Who Can Use CART?
CART makes communication accessible to those who are deaf or suffer from hearing loss. This service is mandated by The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 as an “auxiliary aid and service” to ensure effective communication for those with disabilities.
CART is also being used in many settings such as education, business, and government, anywhere there is a need for reliable speech-to-text transcription. Whether you are holding a convention or seminar, meeting or sporting event, anyone can benefit from CART services. Traci has also delivered CART services to large audiences and students.
Peak Captioning’s CART services will enhance the delivery of your message while complying with accessibility requirements.
