Sign Language Interpreters
A sign language interpreter is a person trained in translating between a spoken and a signed language.
This usually means someone who interprets what is being said and signs it for someone who can’t hear, but understands sign.
Video Remote Interpreting (VRI)
Video remote interpreting (VRI) is a video-telecommunication service that uses devices such as web cameras or videophones to provide sign language or spoken language interpreting services.
This is done through a remote or offsite interpreter, in order to communicate with persons with whom there is a communication barrier.
American with Disabilities Act (ADA) Compliance
The ADA very clearly states the need for proper communication with hard of hearing and deaf individuals. Specifically, the ADA states: …Therefore, any place of public accommodation is required to provide sign language interpreters or other effective means of communication for hard of hearing individuals.
We are proud to accommodate the ADA laws by providing you a clear access to communication for both parties.
