Remote CART, Communication Access Realtime
Translation, provides superior accessibility for your students over other
methods available. Some people may refer to Remote CART as classroom
captioning services. It is the same service.
While interpreters, note takers, and print services
provide a condensed version of what is said in a class or lecture setting, CART
provides the most comprehensive and complete translation for your students.
Remote CART is
not intrusive, meaning the student only needs to have their
computer available for the service instead of a live CART writer
or interpreter. This also allows easier movement from class to
class for the student.
CART services uses the same technology used in providing
realtime captioning services for the television industry. This technology
provides a minimum 98.5% accuracy and translation, allowing the user to have a
comprehensive understanding that hearing students receive, providing deaf and
hard-of-hearing students with equal access.
Students using CART receive an electronic file at the end of each class that
provides them with a “transcript” of the class or lecture. This allows the
student to review and
use these notes for their own study purposes and further review
of what occurred in the classroom.
CART services can be displayed on
individual laptop computers, large
monitors or an LCD projector for the
comprehension benefit of ALL students in the class or lecture hall.
Online attendance of classes are now possible as remote students can now
attend the class or lecture anywhere, allowing distance learning to be easily
