Video Remote Interpreting (VRI)
Video Remote Interpreting (VRI) is a form of sign language interpreting that allows people who use sign language to communicate with a hearing person, at the same site, via videoconferencing, in replace of live, on-site interpreting.
VRI is an effective way to communicate when:
- ● Greater convenience for all parties is priority
- ● An emergency requires an interpreter ASAP
- ● A live, in-person interpreter is not readily available (such as in rural locations, etc.)
Benefits of using Video Remote Interpreting:
- ● No additional costs!
- ● Easy to connect!
- ● Increased interpreter availability
- ● Recognized by the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA 1990) as a reasonable accommodation for a person who uses sign language.
