134. Captioned Telephone Calls
Amplification and clarity technology can be beneficial to many people, but sometimes text communication is needed. For individuals who have some degree of functional hearing but who still have difficulty using the telephone, a captioned telephone may be the solution. For example, the Captioned Telephone (CapTel) is a phone that works like any other telephone but it displays live captions of the conversation. The CapTel phone automatically connects to a captioning service where a trained operator transcribes what is being said. The message is then displayed on the phone's display for the CapTel user to read while listening to the caller. Another option that may be helpful to federal employees is Relay Conference Captioning (RCC). This service is available to all federal employees nationwide who are deaf or hard-of-hearing and gives them equal access as participants in conference calls and/or multi-party calls. Relay Conference Captioning is a service of Sprint and GSA. It is made available free of charge to all Federal Employees. For details, visit: http://www.fedrcc.us/fedrcc/.

137. CART Services
Individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing may benefit from the use of Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) services during small and large group communication situations when verbatim conversation is essential to effective communication. CART is a process of converting speech into text through a third party (CART writer). A trained CART writer or stenographer uses a keyboard or stenographic machine to transcribe spoken speech into written text which is then transmitted onto a viewing device (e.g., computer monitor, video screen). Many captioning services offer remote CART and internet captioning where the CART writer is not physically present at the event but can listen-in through a telephone line.
138. CART Services - Remote
CART enables people who are deaf, hard of hearing, or who have auditory processing difficulties, to participate in meetings and training events by viewing realtime text of the lecture/training/meeting. However, sometimes it is not practical or possible to have a CART writer available on-site. It may be possible to access CART services remotely.
Carts come in all shapes and sizes. Some of the more common types that are used as job accommodations include:
- Stainless Steel Carts and Worktables
- Vehicle Access
- Wheelchair Carts/Trailers
Devices that lock wheels on stools and chairs in place when weight is put on them to prevent falling and rolling away when the chair is occupied.
