Communicating with Deaf and hard of hearing people is our business. Every service user is unique. We will take the time to fully understand your requirements and always match your needs with the best, Language Support Professionals (LSP) for you.
A BSL/English interpreter facilitates communication between people who use BSL and those who use spoken English. They listen to what is being said then translate it into BSL for the deaf person to understand. When the Deaf person is signing, the Interpreter will then voiceover the BSL for the benefit of the hearing person.
