CART Information

CART is an acronym for Communication Access Realtime Translation, CART is an instant translation of the spoken word into English text.  The text then appears on a laptop monitor or other display depending on the environment. CART requires the skill of a trained stenographer with the ability to write at speeds of up to 225 words per minute with 98% accuracy.

CART is sometimes referred to as “computer assisted realtime transcription” or “computer aided realtime translation.”  At Visible Voices, we use Communication Access Realtime Translation because it focuses attention on the “why” of what we do (Provide access) instead of “how” we do it.  (We do use computers, though.)  Some of our clients use phrases like “live event captioning” or simply “live captioning” to help others understand our services.
