this is a Video Relay System
it is my ds’s
(this is dd pictured, he was not available to model)
as you may recall, ds is deaf
this handy little device allows him to “talk” on the phone
he calls an operator/interpreter, he signs to the interpeter
and they talk to whomever he is calling.
if he is calling a friend who has a VRS
then they simply sign to each other
way cool
this makes my life easier because he can call me
on my cell phone!
i can leave him home and know that if he has a problem
he has a way of getting help…
peace of mind
