Communication Access Real-time Translation

Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) services, is a professional service that can be delivered on location or remotely.  CART services provide the instant translation of the spoken words into text using a stenotype machine, notebook computer and real-time software.  The text produced by the CART service can be displayed on an individual’s computer monitor, projected onto a screen, combined with a video presentation to appear as captions, or otherwise made available using other transmission and display systems.

Washington State’s Department of Enterprise Service (DES) manages this Master Contract. For more information, check out DES’s webpage.
