You can access a fully qualified Interpreter whenever you need and remove communication barriers between deaf and hearing people.
Online British Sign Language Interpreting
There are an estimated 150,000 British Sign Language (BSL) users in the UK and access to services, information, and businesses is made difficult by a lack of options.
Many organisations use the phone or email as the primary means of communication but both are ill-suited to deaf people.
SignLive enables BSL users to connect to an experienced Interpreter who can relay a call or face-to-face conversation with a hearing person.
SignLive can be accessed 24/7, 365 days per year. BSL users can download their app (on Android and iOS) or connect to the service via a web browser.
SignLive for Organisations
Organisations use SignLive services to communicate with deaf customers and staff alike. With SignLive you can:
- Receive calls from deaf customers like you would anyone else;
- Have face-to-face interactions on-site with an Interpreter accessed via the app;
- Support the communication needs of deaf staff via Access to Work funding.
SignLive already supplies 24/7 BSL interpreting to councils, NHS trusts, and companies alike. Some key clients they support include: Bulb Energy, Heathrow Airport, the PDSA, and Zurich Insurance.
Most are listed in the SignLive Community Directory, a virtual phone book that contains over 400 listings that deaf people can call for free.
Inclusion is complimentary for all businesses who subscribe to their service and gives you access to an active and connected community who are routinely underserved.
