Deafness, the hidden disability

SignVideo launches on June 1st...not quite there but watch this space!

 Hearing Loss Cornwall is delighted to be launching this new service to us from SignVideo - the perfect way to hold conversations between d/Deaf people and those with hearing.

As we get more used to how this service works, we will be able to engage with people more easily across the Duchy and Isles of Scilly.

We can't wait.

Here are some of the typical services that Sign Video can be used for:

VRS allows hearing and deaf people to communicate from separate locations via the telephone.

A hearing person can use a smartphone or landline telephone to call a deaf person on their smartphone or tablet. The hearing person will hear the interpreter over the phone.

A deaf person can use their smartphone or tablet to call a hearing person on their mobile or landline. The deaf person will see the interpreter on their screen.
