The Industry Standard

Given recent legislative changes, you may have noticed that the “CC” button now comes standard on television remotes and most YouTube videos. What this essentially means is that video captioning is now a standard in today’s video world, and when people go to find the CC button on your video, it won’t just be an inconvenience—it will hurt your brand or product’s reputation because you won’t look as professional as companies and organizations who have provided CART captioning.

CART Deaf & CART services for the deaf

CART services enable your Deaf and hard-of-hearing audience to fully participate in meetings, workshops, presentations, conferences, lectures, seminars, conference calls, webinars, classes, etc.

Captioning can be used by the deaf and hard-of-hearing to understand what is being said in any life situation.

Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) is aphenomenal tool for the individual who is deaf or hard of hearing. CART tool assists the person in participating in meetings, classes, lectures, interviews, medical appointments, and many other settings. Live captioning of events is also a very useful tool in allowing people to have full access to the event.

Both of these methods of assistance are accomplished by having a court reporter listening and writing down what is being said and transmitting the content to various formats of output for the person(s) in attendance.  That may involve just a personal laptop, an overhead projector (for a full room), or encoder for captioning.  Karasch& Associates court reporters have extensive experience in all of these methods.

Our captioner (CART provider) uses a court reporting stenography machine, a computer and website to display everything that is being said, word by word.

Our expert captioner specially performs speech to text transcription.

Karasch & Associates have an excellent reputation in CART services for the deaf and a long list of satisfied customers including educational institutions, government departments & businesses.

Court Reporting Agency

Karasch & Associates is the leading court reporting agency in deposition and litigation support solutions. For law firms and corporations, we provide national coverage, state-of-the-art facilities, highly skilled court reporters, advanced technology, unparalleled client service, and on-time delivery.

In court reporting, accuracy is everything. It is imperative to ensure that your court reporting is accurate, as it could significantly affect the outcome of your case! Below are 5 ways to ensure you receive accurate court reporting from your service provider:

  1. Industry Reputation: What is your court reporter (or agency’s) reputation in the industry? Ask for references and contact them to determine the level of expertise and quality of work provided.
  2. Technology Utilized: Did you know that many court reporters utilize Computer Assisted Technology (CAT) to report the spoken word onto a digital stenograph machine, and then subsequently edit the notes into final text at a later date? What technology does your court reporting agency offer to ensure accuracy?
  3. Court Reporter Education: At Karasch, although it is important for court reporters to possess speed and accuracy, they also must have excellent listening skills, strong English grammar, vocabulary and punctuation skills. In addition, they must possess solid business acumen, be aware of current events and know the correct spelling of high profile people, places and events, since these items could be mentioned during court proceedings. An expert knowledge of legal terminology and criminal and appellate procedure is also critical. Having a good understanding of your court reporter’s background and education will help to ensure the accuracy of your transcripts.
  4. Experience: A court reporter’s experience often determines the level of accuracy you can expect. It is important to take note of your court reporter’s training and education. If the court reporter does not have appropriate experience, you should have some concerns about the potential errors that could occur as a result. Similarly, if the agency providing the court reporting service does not provide their court reporters with the appropriate training, you should be wary about using their services.
  5. NCRA Certifications: Check your court reporter’s NCRA certifications. The certification program has three tiers of achievement, all of which are admirable:
  • Registered Professional Reporter (RPR): The RPR program is the only nationally recognized certification program that establishes your competence as a reporter.
  • Registered Merit Reporter (RMR): This step follows that of becoming an RPR. Court reporters with this status are recognized as one of the top court reporters in the country.
  • Registered Diplomate Reporter (RDR): The RDR is the highest level of certification available to court reporters and can only be achieved by those court reporters that have held RMR status for five years, exhibited exemplary skills in all areas of court reporting and served as a consultant or leader in the profession.
