Summary:Guidelines with specific action plans to become a VRI for DUAL-LANGUAGE interpreters [not ASL] (2 of 2). VRI is a service that connects human interpreters live in real time to individuals who do not speak a common language, both parties using a computer video. Learn to communicate with the other parties using real-time video; analyze message and convey accurately and fast meaning-by-meaning instead of word-by-word. Learn the ins and outs of the profession, including practice materials and learn to follow professional codes of conduct and standards of practice for remote interpreting using video equipment.
