"I had to share this with you. We just received our evaluation for the period 8/1/2021 through 7/31/2022, and it is literally EXCEPTIONAL 😊 Note that we received a much lower rating last go-round due to the issues we had with our previous CART provider. HRI has turned this around in a very big way, and Graham is extremely appreciative of your efforts and success in fulfilling this contract." In other words, YOU ROCK!!

“Since 2017, HRI-CART services has been my first choice in captioning. Whether for events at the University of South Florida or with the City of Tampa, the HRI-CART staff have been professional, punctual and highly skilled. Attendees have been very pleased with the accuracy and delivery of the captioning.”

We are so grateful for the superior customer care and service that HRI provides for our students that require CART services. The entire team is so responsive, kind, and knowledgeable. We utilize HRI services for meeting accommodation needs in academic courses for students, as well as our large scale captioning needs for commencement. We highly recommend them. - Clair Harris, Associate Dean of Accessibility Services and Director of Student Access Services at Ringling College of Art and Design (Sarasota, FL).

UTK Student Disability Services began working with HRI in Fall of 2021. The programs that they were providing CART for were intensive and I was worried that I wouldn’t find anyone at any agency qualified to take on the task. The CART writers we have worked with through HRI have been consistent, accurate and a pleasure to work with. Their response time is quick and the few times we have had hiccups they have been extremely responsive. We appreciate the professional relationship we have had with HRI and look forward to continuing our work together.
