SIU Video Remote Interpreting

Main Content

Specializing in Higher Education

From the start we’ve been working exclusively with colleges and universities. We were among the first to provide Video Remote Interpreting (VRI) in the higher education environment, and we’ve been honing our craft ever since. Using our video remote interpreters means you'll have access to highly qualified and credentialed university interpreters with the support of one of the nation’s most experienced VRI providers.

Our Team is Committed to Excellence

As disability service providers, we hold our VRI services to the same quality standard we expect for our own students. Scheduling the same interpreter throughout the semester and preparing for each course is the key to providing quality VRI services. Interpreters work with your faculty to acquire lecture notes and materials from which to prepare.  We then research best practices for the subject and meet as a team to discuss sign choice and appropriate translations. With SIU VRI, you get consistently scheduled interpreters who are committed to excellence.

We Customize VRI to Fit You

One size does not fit all when it comes to VRI. We understand each institution is different, with unique students, faculty, and resources. That’s why we work with you to determine the best configuration for each class. Our staff has the expertise to identify the unique variables in your classroom and recommend the best set-up, customized to fit you. Helping you ensure that effective communication takes place and meeting the individual needs of your students is what we’re all about.
