CART stands for Communication Access Realtime Translation, but it can have many different meanings. There is even some controversy over the acronym. In general, however, CART is a method in which subtitling professionals use technology to transcribe live audio into text that is instantly rendered for the benefit of the deaf, hearing impaired, or viewers who do not speak their native language.
CART labels have long been the standard for live subtitle events such as presentations, celebrations, and lectures – and often the on-site subtitle specialists provide all the necessary tools so attendees have access to their live labels.

Can CART labeling be done remotely?
While many people who host live events still prefer to use on-site CART tokens to provide access for participants who are deaf, deaf, or unable to speak, technology is also enabling us to have the CART experience that To offers remotely.
In addition to reducing travel costs, remote CART labeling reduces the risk of technical problems during setup or personal issues preventing anyone from reaching the site. Remote CART labeling is also ideal for events with breakthrough sessions or marathon days as it is much easier to coordinate multiple subtitles when you work from your own office.
As a result, live subtitle end users still get the same personalized subtitle experience as on-site subtitles on CART. An important distinction to be made here is that while all CART subtitles are real-time subtitles, not all real-time subtitles are CART subtitles.
