DSU provides both on-site and remote CART (communication access real-time translation) captioning services for anyone needing communication access services. These services are typically provided for meetings, conferences, training sessions, civic events, and in the classroom.
Services are provided either on-site or remotely by using an audio feed. The CART writer uses a steno machine and provided software to display captions on a projected screen or on a computer/device through a browser.
CART writers can be certified to type up to 260 words per minute with 98% accuracy and above.
DSU also interfaces seamlessly with the most commonly used streaming and web conferencing platforms including:
- And More!
At the end of each appointment, DSU can also provide a transcript of the conversation.
TypeWell and C-Print
These services are similar to CART in that the service providers for both systems can provide a real-time display of the spoken information. C-Print and Typewell providers, however, provide a meaning-for-meaning representation of the spoken information versus verbatim, which has traditionally been the goal of CART providers. This service is typically found in educational environments.
Closed captioning services allow you to make existing video content accessible to those with communication access needs.
