Verbatim Translation

CART and Typewell Services Arlington VA

CART and TypeWell services provide text-based accommodations for Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing communities as well as people with autism, auditory processing disorders, and other communication needs. However, each technology suits specific needs and situations.

CART involves verbatim—or word-for-word—translation of material by way of a stenograph machine, transcriber, and software. With CART, the transcriber converts spoken words into readable text displayed on a screen, enabling audience members or participants to follow along. The text can be directed to an individual via computer or projected on-screen for a large audience.

This speech-to-text service suits content containing technical vocabulary that lends itself to text. Examples include technical or scientific learning material and legal discourse. CART also helps in conversational settings or discussion-based learning. 

Transcribers at HIS Sign maintain 98% accuracy and can type at the rate of 250-260 words per minute. We can also offer a transcript within 24 hours of the translation service. Request CART services with HIS Sign today!

Concept Transcription

TypeWell involves conceptual transcription, produced by a transcriber using specialized TypeWell software. The transcription from this technology interprets concepts for the audience rather than offering a word-for-word translation. As such, fewer words are used. A simultaneous transcript is delivered in real-time to any electronic device with internet access, thus enabling the reader to participate. 

HIS Sign offers TypeWell services for colleges and university classes, secondary education, business meetings, conferences, and more. It is best for the 4th-grade level and beyond. Request TypeWell services with HIS Sign today!
