COMPUTER-ASSISTED REAL-TIME TRANSCRIPTION (CART)

CART is a word-for-word, speech-to-text translation service, using closed-captioning technology, for people who need visual communication access. Unlike computerized note-taking or abbreviation systems, which summarize information for consumers, CART provides a complete translation of all spoken words, which allows consumers to decide for themselves what information is important to them. CART consumers include people with hearing loss, individuals with cognitive or motor challenges, people who wish to improve reading/language skills and those with other communication barriers. A CART provider uses a steno machine, real-time software and notebook computer to render instant speech-to-text translation on a computer monitor or other display to benefit an individual consumer or a larger group in any number of settings: classrooms; business, government and educational functions; courtrooms, hospitals, religious, civic, cultural, recreation or entertainment events. Text files are available. Services may be performed on-site or from a remote location via the Internet.

C-PRINT CAPTIONISTS

C-Print is a real-time computer-aided speech-to-text transcription system that can be used as a support option to deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals. A C-Print captionist types the information into a laptop computer. The information is provided via laptop, TV or on screen with an option of two-way communication. C-Print provides a summary of the spoken information. It is not a word-for-word translation. The C-Print system has been used in Maine at public and private post-secondary schools, high schools, workshops, special events, school board meetings and with state agencies. Transcripts are made available via hard copy, disk or email. C-Print is also available for use with consumers who have low vision, blindness, cerebral palsy, attention-deficient hyperactivity disorder, learning disabilities or who speak English as a second language.
