CART Translation is the Key Service in Providing Real Time Transcriptions
Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) has quickly become one of the most widely used technology services for providing instant transcription of the spoken word into text form. The text can be displayed and viewed in several forms including a computer monitor, laptop, TV screen or projection screen. American Language Services (ALS) has provided CART services for over a quarter of a Century.
CART is sometimes also referred to as Realtime or Live Captioning and is used primarily for the hearing impaired. For example, a CART writer would listen to a lecturer (either on-site or off-site) and transcribe all that is said with little to no delay. The text would then be displayed so that the individual could read along and remain an active participant during the event.
There has been some controversy over the meaning of CART. Although CART is acknowledged as an acronym for “Communication Access Realtime Translation”, there is no actual translation included within the service. When spoken language is converted into written text, the service is called transcription. Translation is a service in which written text in one language is then converted into written text in another language. Although Communication Access Realtime Translation may be a misnomer, the benefit of CART services for the hearing disabled community is undeniable.
