Sign Language USA offers 24 hour on-demand Video Remote Interpreting (VRI)!
Video Remote interpreting is the process in which an interpreter is called up over a video connection to either a tablet or computer (similar to Skype). Using webcam, speaker, and microphone consumers can work with an interpreter over a remote connection. In addition to American Sign Language, we offer video interpreting in 40 spoken foreign languages as well such as Spanish, Mandarin, Amharic, and many more!
In many emergency situations when an interpreter is needed instantly, more and more hospitals are using video remote as a way to communicate with patients before a live interpreter can arrive. We can either add our video remote platform to your current equipment (Laptop, tablet, or desktop) or in many cases we can provide equipment for your use* Our video remote equipment is showcased below.
Video interpreting does require you to have a stable high speed internet connection. If using the VRI equipment we provide, you will need to also have access to a wifi connection.
*Determination of equipment supply is on a case by case basis.
