American Sign Language interpreters are in high demand. Often a meeting planner or group organizer doesn't realize until the last minute that one of the participants is deaf or hard of hearing.
In some cases Tembua provides personal equipment to amplify the sound for those individuals. In other cases, a trained and qualified sign language interpreter is required.
Video remote interpreting (VRI) can be provided over secure high-speed internet connections. A computer and webcam are used so that both participants see each other clearly.
There are situations where a remote interpreter is not recommended. These can include complex legal discussions and medical matters. Where used, VRI is cost effective because the normal 2-hour minimum charge does not apply.
