PASADENA (KABC) — The South Pasadena Police Department is using a new app that helps officers talk to a real-time sign language interpreter and communicate with an individual who is hearing or speech impaired.
The Purple Communications Video Remote Interpreting app will help officers if they need to get information from an eyewitness who only communicates using sign language.

There are 466 million people in the world who are deaf and hard-of-hearing, and products like Live Transcribe and Sound Amplifier help them communicate and interact with others. If people with disabilities need specialized technical support for Google’s products and services, they can go to Google Disability Support, and starting today, there will be American Sign Language (ASL) specialists to help people who are deaf or hard-of-hearing through video chat, with help from Connect Direct through TELUS international.
