Video Remote Interpreting (VRI)

VRI enables you to access an interpreter without being in the same room, or even in the same city. Connect with an interpreter through online platforms such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet and FaceTime. Any service, business, individual or organisation that requires Auslan-English interpreting to communicate effectively can do so through the use of VRI. This technology works in the same way as traditional on-site interpreting, only the interpreter is viewed on a screen.
