ASL Interpreting & CART Captioning
The Disability Resource Center employs certified and licensed ASL Interpreters, and certified Communication Access Real-time Translation (CART) captioners to provide services to individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing. These services are available for all University sponsored activities, on or off campus (classes, meetings, workshops, performances, sports and other events, etc.).
If you are planning an event or activity, make sure all information communicated is accessible.

The University of Arizona (UA) is committed to ensuring an accessible and inclusive experience for students, employees and all who use University technology and resources. Captioning makes content searchable and can support learning for non-Native English speakers, visual learners and users in noisy environments. In support of UA's commitment to accessibility and based on recent Department of Justice (DOJ) findings, UA has developed guidance and resources related to accessibility of UA online content.
