Video Remote Interpreting

VRI is the perfect solution for classroom, conference meetings,and parent/teacher meetings.

What is Video Remote Interpreting?

Video Remote Interpreting (VRI) is the on-demand service that provides communication between deaf or hard-of-hearing persons and hearing persons that are in the same location, utilizing an interpreter by way of a computer with a webcam or a tablet using a high-speed data connection.

Interpreters For Educational  Settings

In the classroom, VRI helps the Deaf student ask questions, interact with the teacher, interact with other students and receive communication in his/her native language.

One considerable benefit of video-remote interpreting is that it avoids the issue of travel.  Depending on where your school, college, or university is located, you may not have access to a pool of qualified interpreters, and eliminating interpreter travel expenses can be a tremendous cost-savings!

The other major benefit is that communication can happen within minutes. If a Deaf student wants to communicate with anyone on campus, he/she no longer has to wait until an interpreter is available. Within minutes of contacting us, this conversation is possible. This makes VRI especially useful in financial aid offices, medical clinics, student organizations, study groups, and wherever communication takes place!

Not only that, but many Deaf students seem to like not having an interpreter walking into class with them and it affords them a greater sense of independence. Students love VRI!
