Our agency exists not only to provide needed services to the ASL community; but also to push the envelope on what these services look like. Since we are Deaf, DeafBlind, and Hard of Hearing individuals ourselves; it follows that our agency requires only the highest qualified interpreters to provide equal access and opportunities to all facets of our daily lives.

NOTE: All of our interpreters are Nationally Certified from Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf, Inc. (RID).

SERVICES WE PROVIDE

OUR SERVICES

ASL INTERPRETING

Professional sign language interpreters develop interpreting skills through an accredited college program, which involves extensive training and a lifetime of continued practice after graduation. They follow strict adherence to RID Code of Ethics. The process of interpreting involves more than simply translating between spoken and signed languages. They are well-versed in translating facial and body expressions from the signer and the tone of voice from the speaker. They are the “voice” of the sign language user.

VIDEO REMOTE INTERPRETING

Video remote interpreting (VRI) is a video communication service that utilizes remote interpreters and communication devices such as an iPad/laptop with internet access to interpret between the speaker and signer. Both signer and speaker are in the same room when using this service.

REAL TIME CAPTIONING SERVICES

CART (Communication Access Realtime Translation) transcribes spoken information verbatim into a computer screen or smartphone. CART transcriptionists use either a specialized shorthand machine or cutting-edge speech recognition technologies to create an exact text transcription of any event. Customers who want to know every word spoken with close-to-exact accuracy ask for CART services.
