Deaf Users

InterpreterNow is a service that enables deaf BSL users to communicate with hearing people via an online BSL interpreter.

Using a smartphone, tablet or computer, you can download the InterpreterNow app, or go to the InterpreterNow website, and connect to an interpreter.

The interpreter will phone a hearing person or organisation for you and relay the conversation. You can also use InterpreterNow if you are in a face to face situation, perhaps with your GP, a nurse or a shop assistant, by signing to the interpreter on screen.

Well done South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue!! Currently, deaf, BSL users who don't use English as a language rely on other people to make phone calls to these types of services... working in partnership with InterpreterNow could change all of that. (https://interpreternow.co.uk/contact-us)

We hope to see emergency services all over the UK improving their communication skills with the Deaf community in these vital situations and more.
