Video Remote Interpretation (VRI) is the video chat equivalent of phone interpretation. VRI is an on-demand, cost-effective alternative to in person interpretation, especially for ASL. The LTC Language Solutions VRI service is available through any computer with internet access and a webcam, making it convenient for you to use with your existing systems.
To set up an account to start VRI interpretation, you will need to contact us with names of users, email addresses for each login and time zone for location. We are able to activate your VRI interpretation account within two business days of receiving this information.
LTC utilizes a cloud-hosted solution, which minimizes equipment costs for you, our client. The following items are all you need to utilize VRI interpretation through LTC:
- Computer or any smartphone or tablet that has an Android, Apple or Windows marketplace.
- Webcam (internal or external)
- Microphone (internal or external)
Connecting with an Interpreter
To connect with an interpreter, open a browser or the app provided. You will be prompted to sign in and select your language. Then begin your session!
VRI services are based on a per minute rate. As with other forms of interpretation, invoices are sent on a monthly basis. We require no monthly minimum usage or retainer, which means you pay only for the time you use!
