Video remote interpreting (VRI) is a fee-for-service form of interpreting which allows consumers to schedule interpreters via a point-to-point videoconference instead of having a live, on-site interpreter.

A voice amplifier might be used as an accommodation for an individual who has difficulty speaking loudly enough to be heard in noisy environments or who has a medical need to speak softly due to voice limitations. Amplifiers can be personal, portable, hand-held or body worn systems, or large area sound field or public address systems.

749. Voice Recorders
Voice recording and playback devices can be used to create reminders and take notes. For example, due to difficulties with memory associated with a seizure disorder or from medications taken, an employee might benefit from the use of a voice recorder that would enable verbal directions / instructions to be recorded. This would enable the employee to listen repeatedly and over an extended period of time if needed.
750. Voice-Carry-Over (VCO) Telephones
A voice-carry-over (VCO) phone is another telephone solution for individuals who are deaf. VCO is an option for people who use their own voice, but who cannot hear. For example, an individual who has lost hearing later in life may prefer to continue to use their own voice to talk to others on the phone. Using VCO, the person who is deaf places a call to the Telecommunications Relay Service. The relay operator types messages to the VCO user, and the VCO user responds to the voice caller with his or her own voice, instead of using a TTY.
