Service Description

Services must be scheduled at least 24 hours ahead of time. The first initial hour is $35 and then $2.00 per minute after which will be invoiced. The Deaf student and hearing person are in the same room, while the interpreter is located remotely. 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!
