A lot of great and important things happen in real-time: baseball game performances, brainstorming in video conferences, and imparting knowledge via video lectures, to name a few. Event organizers often find a solution to this requirement called CART labeling.

CART means "Real-Time Communication Access" but can mean many different things. In general, however, CART transcription is a method in which subtitling professionals use technology to transcribe live audio into text that is instantly displayed to an audience who is deaf, hard of hearing, or non-speaking.

CART labels have long been the standard for live closed-text events such as presentations, celebrations, and lectures – and often the on-site closed-text specialist provides all the necessary tools so attendees have access to their live labels.

Can CART labeling be done remotely?

While many people hosting live events still prefer to use on-site CART owners to provide access to deaf, deaf, or speech-impaired attendees, technology also allows us to offer CART experiences remotely. Thousands of live events are remotely recorded every day. 

In addition to reducing travel costs, remote CART labeling reduces the risk of technical problems arising during setup or personal issues preventing anyone from reaching the site.

Remote CART labels are also ideal for events with breakthrough sessions or marathon days, as it's easier to coordinate multiple owners from their own offices. As a result, live subtitle end users still get the same personalized subtitle experience they get on sites with CART subtitles.
