CART (Communication Access Realtime Translation). PEPNet Tipsheet
Larson, Judy, Comp.
Communication Access Realtime Translation--(CART)--is the instant translation of the spoken word into English text performed by a CART reporter using a stenotype machine, notebook computer and realtime software. The text is then displayed on a computer monitor or other display device for the student who is deaf or hard of hearing to read. This technology is primarily used by people with hearing loss, but it also has been used by people with learning disabilities or those who are learning English as a second language. This paper discusses how it works and provides some strategies for faculty members using CART reporters.
