Providing sign language interpreters within the platform: For many people that are deaf, English is their second language. Sign language is their first. Reading is sometimes not fully comprehended under pressure situations and is slower than using sign language to actively engage in a conversation. Text messages, writing notes back and forth or projected captioning are done in a second language, which a person may need more time to fully comprehend. Therefore, using sign language during a job review is critical. View EEOC lawsuits against businesses not providing interpreters during interviews. Note: Think if you learned a second language in school, and then on a job interview you're told "today we'll only speak in that second language."
