CART rates vary depending on location, school, business, etc.  In the university setting they vary in my area (CA) $40-95 an hour with 2 hour minimums.  Elementary and high schools are $25-35.  Other hearings that I've done I'll charge about $75-100 an hour depending on the setting.

Hi, I am trying to get an average rate per hour for CART across the nation, remote and on site.  Can you guys give some input?

Hey all!
I have a few questions for anyone who can help. I have an idea for a captioning-related business, but I know NOTHING about the backend stuff - how it works - what is needed. So if you have any info about not just the front end (the machine writing), but about the other side (the technical aspects), I'd love to pick your brain a bit :)
Thanks in advance!

I've been CARTing now for 4 weeks. Hard stuff, too. I'm permanently assigned to Statistics and Managerial Accounting. The MA is very easy, but the Statistics throws me for a loop sometimes. To add to the foreign-to-me math terms, it's hard to understand the teacher because he has an accent and can't hear him sometimes. Takes me a while to get into it.

I've been writing everything he says even as he's putting it on the board. Sometimes, he goes so quick that if I wrote it, I know it may not be correct, so then I write a note to my student and tell her it's what he just put on the board. She's been fine with that. She also can read thru my phonetic stuff sometimes. Another student I was subbing for in Trig, Dinosaurs and Rocks had a hard time with even one misstroke. The Trig got fun, too. The one thing that makes math difficult for me is writing upper and lower case X, x, Y, y for what they are doing in their equations. Any helpful hints for those kinds of things.

If anyone has any great non-number bar way to write all their numbers, I would be interested in seeing it.

As far as my screen, I use the same format as depos. I define one speaker as STUDENT and the other as PROFESSOR. Seems to work just fine.

We don't give transcripts to the students at this college, so I don't worry about that stuff, but I do go back thru it sometimes to enter more definitions. My student is great. When I'm really getting tripped up on a word that won't define correctly, she'll tell me to use a brief.

Since she is nonverbal, I keep my program in the mode that she can type in. As long as I'm not writing, she knows she can write a message to me. Works very well, no split screen.

That's what they do at the school I do CART at. Unfortunately this is a meeting and they only want the speaker portion of the transcript so I don't know how long that will be and it varies from meeting to meeting.
As for your math class question, I subbed for a math class a few weeks last semester and the student didn't want anything being written on the board to be in the transcript. It was just too much to look at. I guess I was off the hook there. Can't wait until I do a physics or chemistry class. I don't have any background in those areas so will have absolutely no idea about the set-up. Thanks for the input!
