Live captions. Anytime, anywhere.

CART captioning is a speech-to-text service which delivers live captions remotely to almost any screen – computers, projector screens, tablets or smartphones. CART stands for Communication Access Real-Time Translation.

Live captioning provides accessibility and inclusion to people who are deaf or hard of hearing. Captions can be displayed as a full screen of text in real-time, or embedded alongside your presentations or videos.

Our live captions are used in the workplace, at events and in the classroom.

Increased Engagement

Improve engagement and encourage full participation in conference calls, meetings, job interviews, events and classes. Live captions, delivered to any web-enabled device, enable full access and inclusion of all.
