>> CART


Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) is the immediate conversion of the spoken word to text, similar to realtime captioning. The text is streamed, the moment the words are spoken, to the internet or directly to one or more computers. The CART text is then viewed by an individual or projected for a group to see.

CART has been determined to be a reasonable accommodation under the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act), IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) and Section 504 of The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 for individuals with hearing loss.

CART services are widely used to ensure effective communication for students with hearing loss in college and university classrooms.

In addition to now providing equal access to the lecture, CART enables the student to participate in class discussions and take their own notes from the CART text file, which is available to them immediately following the class.

When CART is used in government and workplace meetings, speeches, presentations, and special events, the text file is often found by meeting organizers and minute secretaries to be an invaluable complement to the service.

>> CAPTIONING


Captioning is the visual display of words and sounds that are present on video. The most popular form of captioning used in television broadcasting is Closed Captioning, which can be turned on or off. Open captioning is present on the video at all times and may not be turned off. Open captions are sometimes used in emergencies or where the captions are always needed.

In addition to television broadcast, we provide essential captioning services in stadiums and arenas for live sporting events and concerts, for conventions and speeches, graduations and special events. Captioned video is displayed on televisions, monitors, projected onto large screens or streamed to the internet.

>> ACCESSIBLE ONLINE VIDEO


Caption Crew’s Accessible and Searchable Video makes your online video and audio files searchable by all and accessible to persons with hearing loss.

Finally! Fully searchable, synchronized and truly accessible video and audio on the internet. Whether your goal is to make your video accessible to persons with disabilities or to make it simply easier to find via a search engine, this is the solution for you.

It starts with an accurate verbatim transcript of your multimedia content. This transcript is used to caption the file so that it’s accessible, for example, to someone with hearing loss. Our transcripts are the most accurate on the market, because we use highly qualified transcriptionists – never automated speech recognition.

Text-based search engines like Google or Bing search for the actual words spoken in the video. Our cutting edge patent-pending technology makes it possible to simply click on a search result and be instantly taken to that exact spot in your media file! That’s right, the video will be queued up and ready to play where that precise word or phrase is located. In addition, our robust media player is very versatile, allowing content providers to add their own hyperlinked key words, phrases, description of video actions and “supers.”
