Video Interpretation for American Sign Language

Woman Teaching a Sign Language Class
Video interpretation provides many advantages over other interpreting methods such as on-site interpretation and phone interpretation. At Akorbi, we offer a revolutionary video interpretation service that increases cost efficiency while allowing your facility to communicate seamlessly with employees, clients, and patients. Video interpreters work for many different groups, including those who use American Sign Language (ASL). In today’s blog post, Akorbi explains how video interpreting works with ASL.

Why Is Video Interpretation Important?

  It isn’t always easy to have an in-person interpreter. When you aren’t able to have an interpreter physically present, video interpretation is the best option. You can have an interpreter anywhere in the world at any time with video interpreting solutions. Further, Akorbi’s video interpreting option extends into remote sites and secure locations, allowing you to control interpretation costs while also having convenient interpretation solutions available at any time.

Why Is Video Interpretation Important for ASL?

  Video interpreting solutions are important for many different groups, but they are especially important for the ASL community. For deaf or hard-of-hearing people, there aren’t a lot of good remote interpretation options if they aren’t able to have an on-site interpreter. Most sign language interpretation is done on-site, and over-the-phone interpretation isn’t a possibility. That leaves remote video interpretation as the best remote option for people who are deaf or hard-of-hearing. 

How Does Video Interpreting Work? 

  Video interpreting takes place when you are connected to a qualified interpreter via computer, tablet, or mobile device. This is done on a webcam or the camera on your mobile device, through a secure portal. At Akorbi, our technology allows you to get connected with a qualified interpreter by simply logging into our secure portal, selecting your language, and waiting for the feed to be connected. We work with in-person interpreters as well as video interpreting solutions worldwide.
