(PRWEB) March 11, 2014

Today Access Interpreting, Inc. is excited to announce the official roll-out this week of its new Video Remote Interpreting (VRI) service for the Deaf and hard of hearing community. With the introduction of VRI, Access is able to provide increased sign language interpreting services to consumers throughout the United States.

 

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.
