Video Relay Service (VRS)

Video Relay (VRS) allows Deaf and Hard of Hearing individuals to use American Sign Language (ASL) to communicate on the phone with Hearing individuals. Supported by the Universal Service Fund, callers communicate by working with videophone technology and nationally certified interpreters.

Video Remote Interpreting (VRI)

Video Remote Interpreting (VRI) uses video technology to provide a sign language interpreter on demand for meetings where Deaf and hearing people are in the same room. This is ideal for situations where an interpreter can’t be present in person and is often a cost-effective choice for meeting communication accessibility needs. The Federal Communications Commission has said that VRS cannot be used as a substitute for VRI. VRI is a billable service offered by The Z.
