2. Barriers and Challenges

Public Funded Video Remote Interpreter Services for deaf workers

The high cost of sign language interpreter services creates a "cost-disincentive" for employers of deaf people. Public funding of VRI is needed to remove that barrier. (Consider the Video Relay Services now available at no cost to users). This remains a serious employment barrier for deaf people.
