Communication Support

Sign Language Interpreting Services

Interpreters at the University of Alberta have the training and ability to match the needs of students, whether they prefer the interpretation to be in American Sign Language or a contact variety sign language. Interpreting services are not limited to the classroom only. Services can be arranged for practicums, work placements, or other campus activities and events, if sufficient notice is provided.

CART stands for communication access realtime translation. CART combines the experience of a court reporter with specialized training, hardware and software to reproduce or translate what is being said aloud onto a laptop computer screen (or overhead screen) which can then be read by onlookers.
