Computer Aided Real-Time Captioning (CART)
If a student in your course has requested Computer Aided Real-Time Captioning (CART) as an accommodation, a staff member from SDRC will contact you via email to find out more information about your course. Please be aware that vendors are currently only providing virtual services at this time. Therefore, SDRC will need to work with you and the student regarding the use of technology to ensure the student has access to CART while doing coursework. SDRC may at times be able to secure in-person CART providers, but should not be expected as an option to virtual interpreting services.
CART Services and Zoom (Verbit)
SDRC will schedule a Verbit captioner to provide CART services to students who have been approved for that accommodation. Please provide the Zoom meeting link and password to email@example.com. “Verbit captions” is the Participant name of the Verbit captioner that will attend the meeting.
