Communications Access Realtime Translation
GSA is partnering with Visible Voices to provide their Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) services for all Pardee Keynote Symposia, Presidential Address & Awards, Noontime Lectures, Special Lectures, and the Halbouty Distinguished Lecture. CART is an instant translation of the spoken word into English text. The text then appears on a laptop, monitor or other display depending on the environment. CART requires the skill of a trained stenographer with the ability to write at speeds of up to 225 words per minute with 98 percent accuracy.
