Why remote CART?
Providing access to language through a third party in a remote location can now be nearly immediate and incredibly convenient.
Today, hearing impaired individuals or those with cognitive disabilities are no longer at a disadvantage when listening to speakers at live events.
Instead, they can read English speech-to-text transcriptions on their mobile device or a video screen at the event through remote Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) services facilitated by NWI Global.
How It Works
A credentialed, professional captioner working off-site transcribes speech as they hear it. Within moments, end users see the typed text on their mobile device or on-site video screen. It’s that simple and that convenient.
Plus, scripts of the typed text are made available within 24 hours after the event takes place.
When you use our remote CART services, people with hearing impairments or cognitive disabilities have the same real-time access to spoken information as everyone else at an event.
Simplified Playback of Live Events
In addition to its benefits for hearing-impaired people, our remote CART services provide a simple means of “playing back” webinars or other live events that have not been recorded.
A remote captioner can simply transcribe such events and produce a transcript afterward of what was said. This makes it easy for event participants to review content that was spoken, but not recorded as an audio file.
