Remote CART Services

Apex Dallas Court Reporters provides Remote Cart Services. Remote CART is a service in which we deliver communication access anywhere the recipient has Internet and telephone connections. The audio feed* lets the captioner hear the meeting taking place. The spoken word is then transcribed into English and sent to the consumer(s) for viewing, within seconds of the words being spoken. For larger groups, the receiving computer can be connected to a large screen or an LCD projector. We can obtain an audio feed a few different ways:

  • Using Skype or
  • Using a speaker phone or
  • Using wired or wireless microphones connected to the speaker (this is best in crowded settings with ambient noise) *Note: For optimum results in remote captioning, the audio feed to the CART provider must be of excellent quality.

Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART), or captioning as it’s also known, is a process whereby a CART provider or stenographer, using a steno machine, notebook computer and Realtime software, provides instant word-for-word speech-to-text translation for display. In order to furnish a highly readable English translation, our CART providers (stenographers) possess shorthand speeds of well over 225 words per minute, with a general accuracy level of 99% or greater and are fully educated on the Deaf, deafened and hard of hearing culture.
