Accessibility InformationHearing Information:
We offer a comprehensive suite of interpreting and communication services for Deaf, hard of hearing and hearing people in both Victoria and Tasmania.

Providing Deaf Interpreters who repeat, or relay, a message from Auslan into a highly visual form of communication that can be understood by sign language users who do not use standard Auslan.
Through a partnership with Bradley Reporting, we provide remote and onsite live captioning services to Deaf and hard of hearing clients for a wide range of settings including, but not limited to, courts, conferences, educational settings and workplace meetings. Live captioning can be viewed on a range of devices including PCs, laptops, tablets and smart phones.
Providing notetakers to take notes at events and meetings, either when a Deaf or hard of hearing person is present, or as a mechanism to record proceedings.
