Video Remote Interpreting

Video remote interpreting (VRI) is a form of interpreting that allows people to communicate with a person at the same site via videoconferencing instead of live, on-site interpreting, or over the phone.

VRI works by using videoconferencing equipment at both locations. The interpreter, who is typically at a call center, uses a headset to hear what the person says. The interpreter communicates everything to be said to a web camera. When the person replies via their web camera, the interpreter voices the interpretation. The person who is talking and the person who is hearing can talk back and forth, just as if the interpreter was in the same room.
