VRI Conference With An Interpreter

Video Remote Interpreting (VRI) services are the next frontier in interpreting today. VRI utilizes video conferencing to enable remote spoken or sign language interpreting. VRI enhances accuracy and is a must for sign language interpreting.

Consider this VRI conference example. A doctor has a deaf patient. The patient communicates through the CIT interpreter via an Internet-based video conference on a phone, tablet, computer, or videophone. The remote interpreter translates to the (English, Spanish, Etc...) speaking/hearing doctor what was said. The remote interpreter then communicates to the patient what the doctor said.
