Situational Assessment

Interpreting in VR Settings:  Faces of Deaf Consumers

An infusion module for Interpreter Education Programs

Situational Assessment

Interpreting in VR settings (or any setting) requires that an interpreter gauge their preparedness.  It can be overwhelming to consider all the factors that go into accepting an assignment.  Having a template or checklist can help interpreters determine if additional resources are needed in order to successfully interpret an interaction or, if those resources aren’t available, the situation should be declined.  This section provides some background and suggestions for such an analysis.

This includes a very rich resource of video clips for activities and assessment purposes.
