AB Captioning & CART was founded in 2003 and later incorporated in 2016 by Sandra German. Sandra pioneered CART in Alberta in 1989 and began broadcast captioning in 2002. With her many years of experience working in broadcast captioning and providing CART, she obtained a thorough understanding of what it takes to provide accurate, detailed, and accessible communications. What started in Alberta grew to what is now a nationally-renowned remote CART captioning company. Her love for captioning and CART led to the growth of AB Captioning & CART.
In August of 2022, AB Captioning & CART was acquired by Dash Reporting Services. With this acquisition, the companies plan to continue their shared commitment to promote, strengthen, and advance the profession of CART captioning and court reporting across North America and worldwide. With complementary goals, these two market-leading providers of CART captioning and court reporting services will work together to elevate the consumer experience.
