Video Remote Interpreting
Video Remote Interpreting (VRI) is the on-demand service that provides communication between deaf or hard-of-hearing persons and hearing persons that are in the same location, utilizing an interpreter by way of a computer with a webcam and Internet connection or a tablet using a cellular connection.
Talk to Text Captioning
Talk to Text captioning is the process of converting speech into text just as fast as it is being spoken. A trained captioner uses stenography or voicewriting to accomplish this. Remote CART removes the captioner from the room making the individual’s hearing loss much less noticeable. The captioner may be located anywhere in the country. The viewer simply connects to the captioner over secure internet and begins streaming live audio to the captioner. The captioner in turn streams live captions back which the viewer sees on her/his device. Captions can also be projected to a larger audience. Talk to Text is intended to facilitate realtime access to oral and aural communication.
Telephone Relay System
Telecommunications Relay Service is a telephone service that allows persons with hearing or speech disabilities to place and receive telephone calls. TRS is available in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. territories for local and/or long distance calls. TRS providers – generally telephone companies – are compensated for the costs of providing TRS from either a state or a federal fund. There is no cost to the TRS user.
