5. Video Remote Interpreting (VRI) Service Companies with Nebraska Licensed Interpreters Available
Video Remote Interpreting service companies provide sign language interpreting services through a remote or offsite sign language interpreter. The remote interpreter is able to hear and see all involved parties through the use of a webcam or other internet-based teleconferencing equipment. The interpreter hears what is being spoken and interprets the information into sign language. The interpreter sees the signed message and interprets into a spoken language.
Rates for interpreters are negotiated between the interpreter and the hiring contact. NCDHH does not become involved in any negotiations or communication regarding costs or any other billing issues regarding interpreter services.
