One employee who uses the UbiDuo said, “Having sign language interpreters present at group meetings or special workshops is extremely important to me to ensure that I don’t miss out any communication. The UbiDuo also boosts face-to-face communication for me with anyone, anytime while I’m working on my own. UbiDuo is perfect for me especially when I need to interact with my boss on a daily basis rather than have to wait till a scheduled interpreter arrives maybe twice a month in order to communicate with my boss. By having both the sign language interpreters and UbiDuo to communicate with peers, this ensures full communication access 24/7/365!”
