How do video phones work?
Video phones are used by individuals who are deaf or hard of
hearing to place calls to those who are hearing. Calls made on a video phone
are routed to an interpreter who is fluent in American Sign Language and
appears on the video phone. The caller signs the message to the interpreter who
then voices the message to the other caller. The interpreter will then sign any
messages from the receiving caller back to the original caller.
