[TRANSCRIPT: Do you know our top tips for using Convo + Zoom? As our world is becoming more online-focused, from work to school, we are using technology to adjust to new ways of doing things—including video conferencing. While it’s essential, it’s not always Deaf-friendly or accessible. We are here to change that! Accessing our awesome interpreters is easy using the Convo app and Zoom (or really, any video conferencing platform with a dial-in number). The VRS interpreter can’t join the actual meeting room itself, but here are two important tips that will help improve your call experience and make it smoother. First, share some background information—like what the meeting is about, any specific terminology that will be used, etc—with the interpreter before starting your meeting. This will allow them to understand context and better prepare to interpret. Secondly, communicate with meeting participants that you will be using an interpreter during the meeting and that it’s best to avoid overlapping discussion to give time for interpretation. You only need one device to use the Convo app with video conferencing, and our screen resizing feature allows you to see the interpreter and meeting participants at the same time. We are Deaf-owned, so we understand how important it is to make communication access available any way you need it.]
