Video Remote Interpreting

What Is

Video Remote Interpreting


Deaf Link VRI, provides on demand, real-time interpreting for people who are Deaf and rely on American Sign Language (ASL) to communicate. VRI provides the most time efficient and cost effective three-way communication between businesses or public agencies with their customers/ clients/ employees and a certified interpreter.

How Does VRI™ Work?

VRI works by connecting a hearing person, a Deaf person (both in the same location) with Deaf Link’s Certified ASL interpreters through video conferencing over the internet. VRI is perfect for Law Enforcement, Jails, Airports, Hospitals, Clinics, and other organizations where critical information needs to be exchanged between the hearing and Deaf communities.

VRI has many advantages over conventional on-site interpreting services. Conventional services often require advanced scheduling, incur costs for travel and wait time, and may not be available all hours of the day and night. Deaf Link VRI uses a browser based state of the art technology to provide organizations with the tools to properly service Deaf customers without delay. A simple “click of a button” gives you access to American Sign Language (ASL) Interpreters.
