Relay Conference Captioning
Deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals can participate in meetings, videoconferences, and multi-party conference calls using real-time text streamed to an Internet-connected computer anywhere in the world. This service is provided by the same high-quality Captioners who produce closed captioning on television.
Video Relay Services
Web cameras, when used with the Internet, enable the use of Video Relay Service. VRS provides telecommunication relay services through the use of sign language. Video Relay Services allow a person who is deaf or hard of hearing, or has a speech disability, to make a relay call to a standard telephone user by using sign language to communicate visually with an interpreter through the Internet. VRS requires the use of a web camera and the Internet to place a call. http://fts.gsa.gov/frs
