Please contact us with your requirements so we can assign the best person to you.
Lipspeakers are able to communicate with people who chose to lip read. They will listen to what is being said and repeat this to the person by mouthing the words silently. They will use normal facial expressions and may fingerspell some words if required.
Speech to text reporters
A speech to text reporter (STTR) is also referred to as a stenographer or a palantypist. They will type all words said live in a meeting which will be displayed on a laptop or other screen so both hearing and deaf people will see what is being said live.
A notetaker is normally used in an educational setting. This would cover lectures, seminars or training courses. The notetaker would not write down what is spoken verbatim, but will cover key notes, references and jargon.
Interpreters for deaf / blind people
A deaf blind person, also known as dual sensory loss, will use numerous methods of communication. The interpreter will be able to establish what is best for the customer depending on their degree of sight and hearing loss whether it is block or manual alphabet, hands on signing or visual framing.
Sign language translators
Sign Language Translators are also known as Deaf Relay Interpreters. Their role is to work between the BSL interpreter and the customer. This may be because the customer has complex language needs including mental health issues, learning disabilities or limited language development. The translator can adapt the communication from the interpreter to ensure the customer understands the message.
