CART Services

Round Emblem CART CaptioningCART
We provide CART (Communication Access Realtime Translation)  services to university classrooms (including technology to synch with Braille readers), meetings and events, theater productions, graduation ceremonies and even weddings and funerals. Over the years, Paradigm has been significantly involved in events for several Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing organizations, capturing the spoken word through realtime technology that instantly produces and projects readable English text on a wall or screen. CART live audio feeds can even be delivered remotely through the phone or Internet to individuals and large groups…so you’re never out of the communication loop.

Remote CART
Similar to onsite CART, by utilizing internet connections and phone lines, live audio is fed from the classroom to the remote CART provider. In turn, speech-to-text translation is instantly transmitted by the CART reporter back to the student/s.
