Assistive Technology

Video Relay Service (VRS) is a relay that allows a user to communicate in American Sign Language (ASL) via video-conference equipment to a sign language interpreter, who voices the signed message to a standard telephone user in spoken English. The interpreter then relays the voice message back to the caller using sign language.

VRS is available on the first floor of the Central Library and at Walkertown Branch Library during regular library hours. VRS is free, available on a first come, first served basis. Usage is not limited by the number or length of calls.

Call the Walkertown Library at 703-2990 to schedule an orientation for VRS.
