Real Time CART and Captioning
Live Event Captioning & Audio Description

Live event captioning and CART (Communication Access Realtime Translation) is the instantaneous translation of the spoken word. Text is transmitted within seconds of the spoken word. This service can be provided on site as well as remotely. In a classroom situation, the captioner is present in the room with the student. The lecturer or the professor is speaking, and the text is displayed for the student to view.  Live event captioning and CART can be provided for meetings, classes, training sessions, and special events

Remote captioning is the same, except that the caption provider is in a remote location and receives audio through the use of a telephone or internet connection platform.

Audio Description, also known as Descriptive Audio, narrates the relevant visual information contained in a live event and is an accommodation for blind and low-vision viewers. These descriptions fit into natural pauses in the live event dialogue to provide context, to clarify speakers, and to articulate visual elements that are critical to gain a comprehensive understanding of the live event. Describers are present at the live event and verbalize the narrations through a headset system. These live narrations are heard by the BLV client through the same headset system.

Remote audio description is the same, except that the describer is in a remote location and receives the video of the event through the use of a video camera and an Internet connection platform. BLV clients may listen to the narrations through computer speakers or headset device.

Video Remote Interpreting
Video Remote Interpreting (VRI) — Interpreters located remotely access the audio/video feed through the internet and provide realtime interpreting for your attendees.

Attendees needing spoken language interpreting can access their language through an FM transmitter just as they would if interpreters were located on-site. They can also access their spoken language using their phones to either call into their respective language conference line or listen in high definition using a WiFi or data connection. Live captions and video remote sign language interpreters can be made available on any screen visible to attendees. We will work directly with the A/V company handling your event to display the live captions and sign language interpreters to your attendees where needed.

A 2-hour minimum is standard industry practice and all interpreting agencies charge this 2-hour minimum fee for on-site interpreting services.

In addition, if the job is longer than one hour, two interpreters are typically required (medical jobs are usually an exception.)

The text interpreter listens to the professor, condenses text (meaning for meaning) and keys in the text via a shorthand method.
