Video remote interpreting service

This service enables long distance communication between people who are deaf and hearing people in the event that they cannot meet in person.

The Video Remote Interpreting service, also known as VRI, enables communication between hearing people and people who are Deaf and use Australian sign language, or Auslan as their primary language. Auslan is the signed language of the Australian Deaf community.

What does VRI involve?

Video remote interpreting involves the interpreter listening to spoken information and interpreting this into Auslan. Likewise, they also interpret Auslan into spoken English for a hearing person, using video conferencing technology and the internet.
