Video Remote Interpreting

Video Remote Interpreting (VRI) is a form of Sign Language Interpreting that allows people who are deaf or hard of hearing to communicate with a hearing person at the same time via videoconferencing instead of live, on-site interpreting.

VRI can also be used as an option to Over the Phone (OTP) interpreting for language interpretation. It is particularly useful when visual context is helpful to understand the message being communicated. VRI is also a good option when (1) there is a lack of available qualified interpreters, such as at a rural location; and (2) when an interpreter is needed immediately and there is no available interpreter on-site.
