I’m impressed with the CART services because it allows me to understand correctly what the professor is saying based on reading the notes during lecture. It is convenient for me to use the services from the lecture. I take the time to read it after class and re-make it to my personal notes. I am deaf and hard of hearing, so I find the CART services very helpful since I’m too busy reading the professor's lips to understand what she/he is saying rather than taking notes on my own. Sometimes I will have foreign professors and they are hard for me to understand, so the captionist can understand well and makes the notes. I would recommend for anyone to try the CART services and you will be surprised how the captionist can convert the lectures into notes.
I work at a major university and have used captionists in the past. Unfortunately, much of what was produced was not high enough quality for the students—the captionist was getting the simple part of the lecture but not the meat and definitely nothing close to how the language was used within the lecture. Then we meet Becky at Young Reporting Services….. and WOW. What service!!! We have as close to verbatim as you can get. She and her crew go above and beyond to ensure that the lectures are accurate, timely and professional. Our students now expect AND receive the best! And now they don’t have to do 5 times the work to be successful in their classes…. Thanks for ALL you do for our students!
I would like to thank the captioners for all their help in taking notes for the class. It has been a tremendous help for me in looking back over the transcripts for subjects that I did not clearly understand and was able to see what exactly what the instructor was talking about during class. Again, thank you so so much for all you do!!!!
Because of the severity of my hearing, I used to miss a lot of what was said in meetings. I would leave confused and frustrated by them. Now when I go to a meeting or event, I use CART. With the help and skills of the staff at Young Reporting Services, I can participate fully and understand every time. What a difference!
I wanted you to know of your highly-developed skill and professionalism! So, I prepare this unsolicited note to you to recognize your contributions.
