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.
