Video Remote Interpreting
What is it?
Accessing quality interpreting services should be easy. That’s why we are excited to introduce SWIFT.
SWIFT is a video conferencing service that uses smartphones, laptops and other electronic devices such as video endpoint or videophones to provide interpreting services offsite.
Why Use SWIFT?
- SWIFT is a great alternative when in-person interpreting services are not available.
- SWIFT uses videoconferencing technology to provide the services of a qualified interpreter, usually located at a control office to people at a different location.
- The Provincial Government enacted the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) in 2005, which set out a clear goal to make Ontario fully accessible by 2025.
- SWIFT will make interpreting accessible for all Deaf and Hard of Hearing communites in Ontario.
- 24/7 Accessibility
- “On-Demand” Service
