“Make a VI Happy” Week-August 15-21, 2010

We deaf and hard of hearing consumers use video for communication everyday in addition to our pagers and other means.

When we communicate with hearing people, we use the video relay service, such as ZVRS and we depend on the video interpreters (VIs) to facilitate the calls for us. We often forget they are there–they are like us, they have a job, families and live in the community among us.

Dr. Z wants to ask all of us to take the time to think of them and thank them for their good and hard work. So let’s thank them after every call during “Make a VI Happy Week”- August 15-21, 2010. That will make their day!

With that, Dr. Z will begin a series of “10 Steps for More Effective VRS Communication”, with 3 blogs and vlogs soon.

Thank you–all the VIs out there!!! We care about you.

Dr. Z cares about your communication access.

Disclosure: Dr. Z is a contractor working with CSDVRS on several projects.
