The “gift” is “VCO Plus”–this is for you who can use the phone to speak your message to the other party but are unable to hear what the other party is saying. VCO stands for Voice Carry Over. With ZVRS, you call a video interpreter and if it is a VCO call, the interpreter will call the other party and you can speak through your Z-Phone handset or microphone to the other party. When the other party speaks to you, the video interpreter will sign (interpret) the message back to you. The beauty of ZVRS’ VCO system is that it requires only 1 phone line. Other VCO systems out there require you to have another phone in addition to your videophone. With ZVRS, all our Z-Phones have a microphone or a handset built-in so you can speak directly into the microphone or handset without having to use another phone.
Dr. Z cares about your communication access.
