Businesses that are agile; able to diversify and respond to industry changes – have every chance of thriving.
Although I had reservations about working remotely – I tried it!
My uncertainty was unfounded, I can see a way of incorporating this mode of interpreting into my business.
Remote interpreting isn’t suitable in all domains. However, at the right time, in the right place, Deaf users can gain the access, equality and knowledge they desire.
I’ve recently been involved in some online/remote interpreting with SignLive – one of the UK’s leading Video Relay Service (VRS) and Video Remote Interpreting (VRI) services.
My experience is a positive one, working with a team of up to 90 interpreters and interpreting, on any given shift, for around 30 different Deaf people from all over the UK.

Recently SignLive took the strategic decision to collaborate with, the Deaf lead, Convo Communications, here’s what one of the co-founders, Wayne Betts Jr. of Convo had to say…
“Our immediate focus is on expanding SignLive’s leadership team to support our future growth and enhance our technology, so SignLive is at the forefront of technological advances in accessible communications and video interpreting. Starting with our new app scheduled for release in the coming months, this is the beginning of an exciting new chapter of SignLive and Convo working closely together.“Wayne Betts Jr. (Co-founder of Convo)
“The SignLive + Convo partnership acquisition is a one-of-a-kind, historic achievement. We are committed to keeping the community informed of any new information and you remain at the centre of what we do. Convo and SignLive have always been committed to investing in the Deaf Community and our expansion is just one more step forward in strengthening the Deaf Community on a global scale.”Joel Kellhofer

Change can be challenging – particularly if you haven’t thought about what it might mean for you and your business.
