Video Communications Technology

Video communication technology can be used to connect an American Sign Language (ASL) user directly to another individual who uses ASL, or to an interpreter who can mediate a conversation between the ASL user and someone who uses a spoken language, such as English. These can be standalone pieces of equipment used solely for video communication, or applications that are downloaded to a phone or tablet.
