Video remote interpreting (VRI), is the act of interpreting one language to another through video chat. This method is sometimes preferred to OPI because you are able to read subtle facial expressions and body language. It can also be used when communicating American Sign Language. VRI is perfect for immediate or last-minute needs for interpreting services and when the person you need to communicate with is in another location.

How Is Affordable Language Services Different From Other Language Service Providers?
We do not require our customers to buy any special equipment to use our services. Many other over-the-phone interpreting companies who use this app (or similar ones) offer the first year for free. After that, they then charge a monthly minimum and maintenance fees. We don’t. When you go through Affordable Language Services, you’ll only get charged for what you use. That way, if you go a month or two without using the app, you’re not paying for services you aren’t using. There are no maintenance fees, no expensive updates, and no minimums to pay. Just telephonic interpreting, right when you need it.
Our interpreting app has VRI and over-the-phone interpreting capabilities. Learn more about our OPI services here.
