CART ö Computer Aided Real-Time Translation ö is the instant translation of the spoken word into English text performed by a CART reporter using a stenotype machine, notebook computer and real time software. The text is then displayed on a computer monitor or other display device for the student who is deaf or hard of hearing to read. This technology is primarily used by people with hearing loss, but it also has been used by people with physical disabilities.
