Tish Kerfoot, who is deaf, says that SignVideo, a video interpretation
service in the United Kingdom, has had a dramatic impact on her life.
“SignVideo allows me to express myself fully and I don't feel any different to
hearing people. I am able to express myself freely using my own language.
Before I started using SignVideo interpreting, I would use textphone, but
that would be quite slow and, in order to have a conversation with people - a
real hard conversation that would feel the same to the hearing person as
speaking to another hearing person with the text phone - there was quite a delay
and I found that that was problematic for me at work.
SignVideo has transformed my working life and I have been using it for one
year and I would love to see the system embedded here in England. It has done
exactly that, changed my career and, not only that, but my personal life.”
