Onsite CART

Communication Access Realtime Translation

CART is performed by a Certified CART provider using a realtime translation system (stenotype machine, notebook computer and realtime translation software). This is the same machine shorthand technology used by Texas Certified Shorthand Reporters in courtroom and deposition settings, but CART providers have different certification levels and different software displays.


Did you know that approximately 36 million people in the United States have some degree of hearing loss?   The majority of persons with hearing loss do not know sign language and communicate utilizing assistive listening devices, lipreading and CART.

CART /RCART is often the most effective method of communication in the classroom, courtroom, workplace and public meetings for persons with hearing loss.  The Americans with Disabilities Act includes assistive technology, and lists CART in the definition of auxiliary aids for persons with hearing loss.

  • Highest Recommendation

  • I have worked with Texas Closed Captioning for a few years now and they absolutely have my highest recommendation! I am an Information Technology professional, and with Texas Closed Captioning’s excellent services they have allowed me to actively participate in and also host regular teleconference meetings with co-workers globally. In spite of encountering the heavy accents of people in other countries, and also dealing with industry-specific technical terminology, Texas Closed Captioning’s highly skilled staff always comes through and the people I am holding my meetings with rarely know I am having someone ‘write’ my meetings for me. The management and staff at Texas Closed Captioning have always been professional and friendly and willing to help me with whatever challenges I give them.
