This is phenomenal, Bill. Just what I was thinking of. Thank you for giving us this information.
I believe this is what I saw working very well once, at an event, and it was impressive...
I wonder if Streamtext.net can help with Google Hangouts presentations, giving us the written text of a presentation realtime for those who are watching our Symposium - and maybe the transcript that is created can also serve as the text for captions on the videos in YouTube later?
So many opportunities -

Basically, a CART provider listens in to the sermon at his/her home (or wherever) - usually through a cell phone used by the person talking - and codes it in shorthand with a stenotype machine. Special software in a computer (usually a laptop) translates the shorthand from the stenotype into words. These words are then broadcast live over the internet on a site such as www.streamtext.net <http://www.streamtext.net/>. It's a very quick, reliable, established method and it can be accessed either on a computer or smart phone.
> I have a good friend who just started her own local Christian radio show and she's also a CART provider and the sign interpreter at my church. Because of her knowledge and background, she provides remote CART for her radio show. Her deaf friends (some who live a thousand miles away) "listen" in. It's an amazing experience: the deaf listening to a radio show .. who would have thought?
