SignVideo Interpreting Service

Start SignVideo

 

 

What is this?

SignVideo gives our Deaf British Sign Language (BSL) customers easy access to an online interpreter allowing them to communicate with us using BSL. The service allows Deaf BSL customers to sign to an interpreter and the interpreter speaks to an adviser. It’s simple, fast and secure.

Just one way in which we make sure our insurance is accessible to everyone.

How do I use it?

IIf this is your first time, you’ll need to download a one-off Live plug-in. This enables good video quality and ensures that your calls are secure. You will get instructions when you connect to the web access page.

After that, you simply need to accept the terms and conditions.
