Among the communication options for deaf and hard of hearing people is a service called CART (Communication Access Realtime Translation), a method of Speech–to–Text translation. Using stenographic machines and computer software, CART providers translate the spoken word into the written word nearly as fast as people can talk. Text is displayed on a laptop computer, monitor, or large screen, depending on the situation. CART results in a verbatim (word–for–word) text of all spoken content.
CART is great for classes, online meetings, court proceedings, conventions, and more!
Webinars, distance learning, religious programming, Zoom meetings, are just a few types of programs that can be captioned live.
Seminars, webinars, conventions, lectures, commencement ceremonies, Equal Access Services can provide captioning that will enhance your event and promote your compassion for accessibility
Make your next live streaming event ADA and Section 508 compliant. With the use of realtime captioning, you can reach a wider audience and grow your participation.
I feel so fortunate to work for EAS. It’s very rewarding to be an advocate for the deaf/hard of hearing community. I love that I have flexibility in my work schedule and the luxury of working remotely from the comfort of home. Dave is incredibly easy to work with and really supports his staff while providing excellent client services. EAS is by far the best job I’ve ever had, and I feel proud to be a part of this company.
Dave and his team at Equal Access Services have been great to work with. They provide excellent customer service and professionalism in all that they do; whether they are providing CART, TypeWell, or Interpreters for students, staff, and events, we know it is always performed to the highest standard.
