Mission Statement

RRC is a woman-based company created to serve the needs of the deaf and hard-of-hearing community through real-time speech-to-text translation, providing access to speech that may otherwise elude them. Opportunities for real-time translation and live captioning have continued to grow throughout mainstream America in business corporations, financial industries, the internet, government organizations, and educational settings.

We continuously strive to educate the public about the benefits of real-time translation and closed-captioning to mobilize and expose the benefits of the industry as a whole. A significant portion of our time is dedicated to advocating for the deaf and hard-of-hearing community and upholding the rights that individuals are granted through the ADA (Americans with Disability Act).

The Purpose: To provide accurate, dependable, and customer-oriented real-time translation services in every setting, delivered in a variety of ways: via crucial and beneficial real-time translation, CART (Communications Access Real-time Translation), and closed-captioning.

Not only do we constantly strive to advocate for the deaf and hard-of-hearing, but also, as we move farther into the 21st Century, we realize how vital Universal Access will be for future generations in order to experience growth in a world of innovation throughout various industries.

The Values: Upholding principles of efficacy, camaraderie, professional growth, and high standards in order to reach our highest potential, both individually and company-wide.


Ariana Jordan Bio

Ariana is originally from Santa Monica, California where she attended high school at SAMOHI. After discovering the stenographic field in 2003, Ariana knew that becoming a stenographer was the niche for her; she quickly enrolled in the Information Reporting Technology program at St. Louis Community College – Meremac. She knew from the beginning that she wanted to caption for television and work with the deaf and hard-of-hearing as a CART Provider, essentially becoming their "ears." Her studies veered away from the judicial field and became focused primarily on CART/Captioning.

During her study time in the program, Ariana was selected to be CART Provider for the college a year prior to graduation, thus embarking on her career as a CART Provider in 2005. Simultaneously, she was also scouted out and recruited by a major U.S. captioning company. She went on to complete the program, graduating in May 2007 with Academic Honors. She earned a Certificate of Proficiency in Information Reporting Technology, specializing in CART/Captioning.

Since the summer of 2007, Ariana has captioned news for stations such as KSDK, Channel 5 in St. Louis; WCSH, Channel 6 in Portland; and WCCO, Channel 4 in Minnesota. Ariana has captioned hundreds of hours of live sports including baseball, football, hockey, basketball, and lacrosse.

Ariana began working with Patti White of Good Sport Captioning in the fall of 2007, providing on-site CART in addition to her broadcast work. The following summer, Patti trained Ariana as an in-stadium captioner, and Ariana began to learn how to use Case Catalyst CAT software in order to display her captions to LED boards and scoreboards in stadiums. During the 2010-2011 baseball seasons, Ariana captioned the Mets home games at Shea Stadium. When requested, she also filled in for the New York Yankees and St. Louis Cardinals. She is currently the in-stadium captioner for the St. Louis Cardinals.
