Tapping Technology: LATN Video Remote Interpreting

LATN stays up-to-date by providing clients with sign language interpreting options that takes advantage of modern technology. We offer Video Remote Interpreting (VRI) for those who want to meet on-demand needs easily and efficiently and also need to comply with equal access mandates of the U.S. Department of Justice. VRI can be used anywhere in the world where viable wired or wireless telecommunications are available.

When using VRI, both the Deaf and hearing individuals are in the same room while the LATN interpreter is connected remotely with audio and video via internet.

Settings in which VRI is often used:

  • Hospitals
  • Physicians’ offices
  • Mental health care settings
  • Police stations
  • Schools
  • Financial institutions
  • Workplaces
