Completion of the Broadcast Captioning/CART (Communications Access Realtime Translation) certificate allows graduates to work in a variety of settings either as Broadcast Captioners or as CART Providers. Broadcast Captioners use realtime machine shorthand skills to create the captioning you see on television. This captioning is created to allow access to television broadcasts to people who are deaf and hard of hearing. Broadcast Captioners work doing on-air captioning of live programming. CART is a service that can be requested by people who are hard of hearing as an alternative to having a sign language interpreter. It falls under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) as one way of providing equal access to services. Graduates can find work as CART providers in legal, educational, and various trade fields
