How Video Remote Interpreting Works
Video remote interpreting is a cutting edge technology that is changing the way we communicate. VRI connects multiple parties together without an interpreter physically present. It provides the benefit of face-to-face communication with the simplicity of over-the-phone interpretation.
Video interpreting services are great for communicating with staff, business partners, patients or clients who are Deaf, Hard-of-Hearing or who have limited English proficiency. The use of this technology is catching on in healthcare, corporate and other business operations.
What is the “Cloud”?
“Cloud” is basically another term for the Internet. Cloud-based applications are stored in the Internet versus on your computer, tablet or mobile phone. This makes it easy to access from anywhere at anytime. Our HIPAA-compliant, cloud-based technology is easy to set-up and you do not need to hire additional IT staff or invest in advanced training sessions. Just turn on your device and go!

Once an agent has received the information, a session identification number is assigned. Once assigned, the agent is available for interpretation. After a successful call is made to the agent and all video/audio connectivity is established, the interpretation session begins for the duration required.
