Getting Started


Thank you for using Gallaudet Interpreting Service Video Remote Interpreting (GIS VRI). Getting started is simple! GIS VRI provides interpreting service from either a PC or MAC. If you are using an Apple product, such as an iPad or computer, interpreting service can be provided through FaceTime, Skype, or Fuze Meeting software (click here) . These programs are free and can either be found already installed on your computer or downloaded directly from the App Store. If you prefer to use a PC, GIS VRI can be reached through Skype or Fuze Meeting (click here)

To request a GIS VRI interpreter follow the "Request Interpreting Service" link on the left hand side of the screen. Be sure to note whether you plan to use FaceTime, Skype, or Fuze Meeting as well as a preferred email address.

If you have further questions or would like to see a demonstration of GIS VRI service, please contact Erica Alley at


We look forward to working with you!
