NOTE: Interpretive services can only be used with paid subscriptions to (Professional, Clinic, and Enterprise) because Group Calling is necessary. If you want a more integrated solution, check out the Live Interpreter Extension.

Interpreters from LanguageLine Solutions can assist you with ASL or other language interpretation to help you communicate with your patients.

Interpreters are available Monday through Friday from 6:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Pacific time. Requests made outside these hours will receive an “interpreter unavailable” message.

Step 1

Go to your dashboard and select Copy to copy your waiting room web address.

NOTE: Video interpreters only join meetings on-demand (they will not receive invitations for meetings scheduled in the future).

  4. Paste the web address for your meeting (that you copied in Step 1) into the field titled Meeting Invite URL.

  5. Click Request Interpreter.

Step 3

Return to your dashboard and wait for the interpreter to appear in the Patient Queue.

  2. Select Start Call.

Step 5

Step 7

Upon joining the call the interpreter will make a standard greeting and may request data required by your organization, such as a department name.

NOTE: Deaf and hard of hearing patients may want to see the ASL interpreter enlarged at all times to enhance understanding.

You may ask your ASL interpreter to communicate these instructions to the patient: “Tap or click on the interpreter’s image to enlarge the interpreter’s image on your screen.”

Step 8

To end the interpretation session, ask your interpreter to hang up or click on the red phone icon to end the meeting.
