Val,
When the first SignWriting Symposium was being setup I looked into an 
app for hangouts that allows a CART provider to connect to a hangouts 
and provide CART through streamtext.net.  I just looked at Hangouts and 
it seems to have changed.  However, when starting a video call, I'm 
given an option on the menu to use the original hangouts and that 
provides for using apps.  There's a CC button in mine that allows me to 
connect to streamtext.net .
Screenshot of it attached.

Bill
