MEDICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH

There are options available if a situation requires communication through English in a written form, rather than American Sign Language. Depending on the situation, one might choose either C-Print or CART services. SRI Interpreting can provide these for you. C-Print requires a trained operator with keyboard attached to a computer monitor. The operator types text as a speaker is speaking. The consumer can then read the conversation taking place in real time. This is often the choice for daily needs when a verbatim transcription is not necessary. CART uses a special keyboard and a long, narrow roll of paper. Notes are transcribed into actual documents later. The goal for this technology is a verbatim record of what is said. The training for this kind of work is more extensive and is used often in legal settings.
