NRS/NAC 656A Explained in ASL



    The Nevada Interpreter/CART Registry (the Registry) is a list of sign language interpreters and Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) providers (NRS 656A.080) who meet the minimum qualifications in this State as required by Nevada Revised Statute (NRS) 656A (NRS 656A.100)

    All sign language interpreters and CART providers must be registered in order to practice in the State of Nevada (NRS 656A.800). See below for exceptions.

    An “interpreter” is anyone engaging in the practice of interpreting (the facilitation of communication between persons who are deaf or whose hearing is impaired and other persons). (NRS 656A.060)

    A “CART provider” or “realtime captioner” is anyone engaging in the practice of the immediate, verbatim translation of the spoken word into English text using a stenographic machine or voice recognition software, and a computer and realtime captioning software. (NRS 656A.025)


      (NRS 56A.515) A consumer of interpreting or CART services who is dissatisfied with the services provided by an Interpreter or CART provider may file a complaint.  A person can file a complaint in person, on the phone or Video Phone, via email, or by completing the complaint form.
