      Different ways to communicate

      Are you having trouble communicating with friends or family? Are you finding it increasingly difficult to communicate in a noisy workplace? Find out more about British Sign Language (BSL) interpreters and other forms of communication support as well as how you can help to improve communication in the workplace.

      Using a registered communication professional at work, in education, for medical appointments and for meetings with officials can help people with hearing loss to participate fully.

      If you're sometimes called to last minute and urgent meetings, video interpreting can solve the problem of getting a British Sign Language interpreter at short notice.

      If you have hearing loss and prefer to communicate through lipreading and speech, you may find a lipspeaker can help you to lipread.

      If, when you make telephone calls you can't hear the other person's voice or don't catch all that they're saying, or they can't understand what you're saying, the Relay UK can help.

      If you're attending meetings or conferences, a speech-to-text reporter can provide a real-time translation of what is being said so that you can participate fully.

      Are you finding it difficult to communicate in your workplace? Do you struggle with phone calls, and meetings? There's a lot you can do to improve your situation, from equipment to communication support.
