Remote Interpreting Services
Useful For: Disability Services Professionals, Employers, New Users, Vocational Rehabilitation Professionals
Video remote interpreting (VRI) is a fee-based service that delivers interpreting services, often on demand, through a web-based platform on a computer, laptop, tablet, or smartphone.
VRI can be used effectively to:
fulfill last-minute, urgent requests for an interpreter;
offer interpreting in the absence of in-person interpreters, especially in rural areas;
provide interpreters with specific skill sets (e.g., deaf interpreters, trilingual interpreters); or
meet a deaf person’s communication preferences.
