Information for Professors:


This information is for professors who have Sign Language Interpreters and/or CART Providers in their classrooms.

  • Interpreting is receiving a message in one language and delivering it in another. It requires a complex process that requires a high degree of linguistic, cognitive and technical skills.
  • Professional Sign Language Interpreters develop interpreting skills through extensive training and practice over a long time period and continue to improve their skills, knowledge, and professionalism through membership in the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf, Inc. (RID).
  • CART Providers write the spoken word on a steno machine. Software enables the student to see the text on a laptop.
  • CART Providers receive certification and maintain their skills through membership in the professional organization, National Court Reporters Association (NCRA).

The following questions and answers will provide you with some of the information needed to work more efficiently with Interpreters/CART Providers and Deaf or Hard of Hearing Students.
