MSDP has recently joined up with Sign On Screen to provide a breakthrough in communication, specifically designed to enhance a deaf persons life. Sign On Screen is the on line interpreting service being initiated by MSDP in the Merseyside region. The unique online platform opens a channel of visual communication between Sign Language users and provides them with the ability to access a range of services. These can include Solicitors, Accountants, Taxi’s, Takeaway food, Estate Agents, Travel agents and so on. There will be a variety of tariffs available to match the individual’s needs and also a Directory, which will include a list of businesses who will incur the cost of the interpreted call.
The real time link is accessed from an Internet connection and connects to a registered sign language interpreter. This can either be available on the move or at your desk.
This software is available for download on most devices such as – Laptops, PC’s, Androids, Tablets and IPhones.
These devices require a certain specification in order for them to be compatible with Sign On Screen.
The group of organisations that are working together on this project are all members of DN:UK (Deaf Network UK)

We will be organising events in the near future to inform people of how they can be involved on both the Customer and Commercial side.
