[TRANSCRIPT: To have access during remote video meetings, you need the right equipment at home. You need high-speed Internet access. You must be able to see the interpreters and/or captioning clearly during the video meeting. You can use WiFi but it is better if your computer connects by Ethernet cable directly into your router. You should test the equipment before a video meeting to make sure everything works well. If your computer supports two monitors, you may need a second monitor for your video meetings — ask your boss to provide a second monitor. If your boss cannot give you a second monitor, use your TV as the second screen. The first monitor shows everything except the interpreters and/or captions which you can see clearly on the second monitor. You may need a long HDMI cable to connect the TV to your computer. Again, ask your boss to give you the items you need.]
