Equal access and effective communication continue to be a top priority for the ILCKC Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services Department. With the safety of our interpreters and community in mind, we have made adjustments to how interpreting services are provided.
Since COVID-19 has presented challenges with live, in-person interpreting, we have responded by instead offering Signed Video Interpreting (SVI).
This consists of providing remote interpreting services via ZOOM and Webex. Although, not ideal, using video conferencing allows us to provide access to the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing community while keeping everyone safe.
