744. Video Phone Equipment

A videophone can be used as a communication solution for individuals who use sign language. Using a videophone and a video relay interpreter, sign language can be used to communicate over the telephone. For more information, go to the following sites.

745. Video Relay Services (VRS)

Deaf and hearing individuals can communicate by telephone through a sign language interpreter by placing a video relay call. Video relay calls are made using a high-speed or broadband Internet connection (i.e. DSL, cable, or T1 line) and a videophone connected to a TV, or through a personal computer equipped with a Web camera and video relay software. The person who is deaf signs to a video interpreter on their monitor, who then communicates with a hearing person via a standard phone line by relaying the conversation between the two parties. For more information regarding video relay services, see the following resources.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) gives an informative overview about how this technology works in its "Consumer Facts Sheet: Video Relay Services" at http://www.fcc.gov/cgb/consumerfacts/videorelay.html

746. Video Remote Interpreting Services (VRI)

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.
