This workshop will have participants reviewing and discussing the FCC mandate, and publications regarding rules and regulations directly addressing interpreters’ practice in the VRS setting. Compare and contrast the National Consortium of Interpreter Education Center’s stated competencies for VRS to general competencies and interpreter training experiences. Consider a ‘typical’ workday in VRS and develop a dialogic work analysis, and engage in activities to assess the ‘hard and soft’ skills development necessary to assure quality of service.
On completion of this session, interpreters will be able to:
- Outline key mandates establishing and regulating VRS
- Describe how corporate service providers obtain VRS carrier contracts
- Identify constraints of VRS as evident in published research
- Give examples of ethical and effective practice within the given constraints of VRS
- Critically evaluate how their training, and experiences satisfies the competencies required for VRS
