Quick Tip: Providing Reasonable Sign Language Interpretation Accommodations

When needed by virtual meeting participants, sign language interpretation should be provided. Should sign language be provided for all meetings that might have a participant that needs interpretation? Because of the cost associated with interpretation, it’s reasonable to ask that meeting participants request this accommodation beforehand, then provide it if requested. If there is a high likelihood that participants may need interpretation, it may be better to provide it by default.
