12 Steps to Realtime CART Captioning


Are you ready to take the leap into CART Captioning but don’t know where to begin?  You’ve come to the right place.  Join me in Pasadena, CA for my upcoming workshops.

Ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Are you looking to feel good every day by providing access to the spoken word for those who truly need and appreciate your skills?
  2. Are you ready to stop spending hours on transcripts?
  3. Are you ready to quit commuting in traffic?
  4. Are you ready to stop dealing with difficult attorneys?
  5. Are you ready to have more time to live a quality lifestyle?

If you’ve answered yes to any of the above, then it’s time to take the leap and begin your training!  For only $289, you will learn how to retool your steno to provide the best CART and Realtime.

As a 20-year veteran in all things realtime, I have spent my entire career honing and developing consistency in my theory to avoid stuttering while writing even the most difficult of speakers.  After being asked time and time again to help my friends and colleagues transition to captioning, I started jotting down my thoughts and ideas and created 12 Steps to CART Captioning.  While I never saw myself as a teacher, I know I need to share these steps with others so we can increase the quality of the current state of captioning.

As president of Caption CART, I want to be your trainer, in-person and on-site. We will start with an in-depth review of your current steno theory, and see where we need to retool, rethink, and revise your steno outlines to become more consistent and caption ready.

"Deb has a unique approach to her clients: she makes each feel like they are most important to her, and she takes personal pride in the work she does for them. The result is an excellent captioning job, and a wonderful rapport with all her clients. Her work is completed before it is requested, and with the quality that is expected. If Deb can pass those same qualities on to those she's instructing, students will have an enriching and extremely useful experience." ​—Jeri G.
