Language People service

Language People LP-Revolution TM, the first ever Sign Language tablet designed to allow customers to communicate with employees using sign language.  The product helps encourage equal access and ADA compliance for all including the Deaf.  Through the use of video streaming technology and the Company’s proprietary VRI (Video Remote Interpreting) software, the LP Revolution allows Deaf users to touch a button and almost instantly connect with a sign language interpreter, who then converts the sign language into words for the other person to hear through the kiosk. 

 The LP-Revolution will be available for NBPL Patrons in late 2016 / early 2017.
