On-Demand ASL Video Interpreting Services for Deaf ED Patients

Helping hospitals bridge the communications gap with deaf individuals, DT Interpreting, a service of Deaf Talk LLC, and Sony Electronics are providing access to on-demand American Sign Language (ASL) video interpreting services.
The collaboration involves the use of Sony’s IPELA PSC-TL30 all-in-one video conferencing system, a network ready video communication system that allows instant communication over IP networks.
For ease of use, the system is designed with single-layer GUI, translucent cascading menus and simple mouse operation.
The new video interpreting program will help hospitals provide ASL interpreting services 24/7. It also allows hospitals to access interpreters quickly, which can reduce delays in diagnosis or treatment.
The program also makes it easier for hospitals to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, which requires hospitals and physicians to provide an ASL interpreter upon request for a deaf patient.
