(PRWEB) March 11, 2014
Access Interpreting, Inc., the premier sign-language interpreting and communication access services agency, today announced the launch of its highly anticipated new Video Remote Interpreting service.
With the option of Video Remote Interpreting (VRI), Access Interpreting’s staff and freelance interpreters are now able to service more clients across the United States, as VRI technology provides access to sign language interpreters when an in-person interpreter is not available.
The Access Interpreting VRI service is made possible with new webcam technology and high-speed internet. Using a webcam, the Deaf or hard of hearing customer and the hearing person they need to communicate with are connected to an interpreter from another location. As the hearing person listens to the interpreter speak through the speakers, the Deaf or hard of hearing customer is able to watch the interpreter on a television or computer screen.
VRI is most effective for medical consultations, emergency situations, and to connect a Deaf or hard of hearing person living in a rural area to an interpreter. This service can also be used to aid students in a classroom, providing Deaf and hard of hearing students with access to classes, programs, and events that they might not otherwise be able to attend.
“Our Video Remote Interpreting service has been in development for quite some time now, and we are excited to finally offer this service our existing and future clients,” said Brad Leon, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. “We believe this service in particular is vital for the Deaf and hard of hearing community, as it can provide access to interpreting services around the clock. When you need us, we’ll be there.”
Consumers can make appointments for the VRI service at the time which is most convenient for them, and if needed, the services will be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
