Bridges for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing is proud to offer Communication Access Real-time Translation (CART) services to those who prefer to read text in real-time rather than utilizing American Sign Language. CART is particularly important to create equal access for our Hard of Hearing and Deaf-Blind communities. CART services are performed by seasoned providers and ensure that your Deaf or hard of hearing consumers are receiving an equivalent message as those who are able to hear. This service is a speech-to-text system. Services may be offered on-site or remotely. Please contact the Interpreting Services Department at (615) 248-8828 (BridgesTN and BridgesWEST) for rate information, general information about our services, or to schedule an interpreter or CART provider.
