First, you want the interpreter to acknowledge getting the phone number you want to call with a SMILE!
Second, the interpreter will respect your request to announce (to explain that the caller is a deaf hard of hearing person and that he/she is using sign language to communicate) or not to announce the call
Third, the interpreter is able to follow your signing and will ask you to clarify if he/she doesn’t understand you
Fourth, if the bank or credit card company asks for your credit card number, you just need to press the numbers on the keypad without having to spell it out to the interpreter
Fifth, after completing a call, you want to call someone, you can ask the interpreter to look at your contacts list and you can ask them to “call Mom” or whoever is on the list, without having to look up the number yourself.
Finally, after concluding the call session, the interpreter signs off with a smile!
