CART Services to be Donated at Conference for Late-Deafened Adults
Columbia, S. C., October 17, 2012
CompuScripts Captioning, Inc. is proud to announce that they will be exhibiting their services at ALDAcon 2012, a conference hosted by the Association of Late-Deafened Adults, October 17-21 in Columbia, S. C. In addition to greeting visitors in the exhibition hall, CompuScripts will also be donating two sessions of CART. Communication Access Realtime Translation services provide captioning of the spoken word in the classroom, boardroom, courtroom, and other environments for the deaf and hard-of-hearing community.
Deborah Dusseljee founded CompuScripts to offer services to various entities in need of effective communication with predominantly hard-of-hearing and Deaf persons to include real-time closed captioning, offline and live display captioning, CART, subtitling, and text-streaming. Deborah was instrumental in launching the closed captioning of local news programming in the Columbia area through her work as the Shatter Silence Committee Chair for Quota International’s local chapter. Later, Deborah worked with the South Carolina Association of the Deaf in launching realtime closed captioning services for the South Carolina Senate and House of Representatives, as well as four news stations located throughout the state. Since its founding, CompuScripts has provided complimentary CART services to local charitable organizations.
“Today, CompuScripts’ community involvement extends to supporting the Oliver Gospel Mission, Harvest Hope, Heartworks, and Pets, Inc.,” Ms. Dusseljee said. “We believe this helps us stay connected with South Carolina area residents and helps to create a more tightly-knit community.”
