5% of people all over the world experience hearing loss, and another 5% have speech problems. Communication is very important to our lives.
Better Speech and Language Month was set out to raise awareness of issues surrounding communication problems, such as an inability to hear properly or speak effectively.
Homeland Language Services provides different types of services. Among them, you can find American Sign Language Interpretation and Video Remote Interpretation. These types of language services help people with speech and hearing problems. They get the possibility to communicate and solve their medical or social issues.
The main role of a sign language interpreter is to create effective communication between deaf people and individuals who can hear. The interpretation requires fluency in two or more languages, and the ability to focus on what is being shown and said professional and ethical conduct. Interpreters from Homeland Language Services serve all the parties during the communication. Due to their work deaf and hard hearing, people can feel like meaningful members of society.
Video Remote Interpretation makes life easier for limited-English speakers and the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing because they can see their correspondent and feel heard. Video interpretation has more advantages than over-the-phone services when individual contact is vital. The visual presence of all parties makes the conversation trustworthy, easy, and clear. VRI replaced the work of the interpreter on-site. During the coronavirus crisis, it is vital to be safe and decrease the number of social contacts. That’s why we always suggest our clients use Video Remote Interpreting.
Interpreters in Homeland Language Services are HIPAA compliant and work in more than 100 languages.
This month is held for over nine decades to make people think about their hearing and speech. Our language specialists are always ready to help people with hearing and speaking problems. But we want to share the signs which indicate them:
- You need to ask people to repeat what they said;
- You need to turn your ear towards a sound to hear it clearly;
- You need to look directly at the person to understand he;
- You can hear clearly the group conversation;
- You listen to TV or music at a high volume;
- You have a pain or a ringing in your ears.
Be attentive to your health and stay aware of different signals from your body.
