Video Assisted Speech to Speech Relay Available through July 31
Speech to Speech, Virginia Relay’s service for people with speech disabilities, is offering a limited trial for an enhanced Speech-to-Speech (STS) service called Video Assisted STS or Vid-STS.
Vid-STS allows you to communicate with a video-equipped STS communication assistant through a separate video link connection.
The benefit here is that the Vid-STS communication assistant will be able to see your facial expressions and gestures to better interpret what you are saying.
To participate, you must have the following:
- High-speed Internet connection
- Video phone or web camera
- A user account with a video conference application like Skype
- A STS user profile
To take part in this trial, call 1-866-221-6784.
