Frequently Asked Questions
Find answers to frequently asked questions about Sign Language Interpreting services for banking and more.
Financial service companies can make services accessible to Deaf individuals with an on-staff Sign Language Interpreter or with on-site or video remote interpreting through a professional third-party interpreting service, such as Sorenson.
The ADA prohibits any U.S. company from discriminating against people with disabilities, including the Deaf and hard-of-hearing. Any company with 15 or more employees must provide equal access to all when applying for, interviewing for, or holding a job. Companies that serve the public must also provide effective communication for customers. That includes making an ASL interpreter available if a Deaf individual asks for one.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), more than 5% of people worldwide have disabling hearing loss. To put that in perspective, if a bank has 100,000 customers, 5,000 of those customers would have disabling hearing loss. Those customers need—and are entitled to—the same banking services as hearing customers. Banks, CPAs, and investment firms can’t refuse an American Sign Language (ASL) request. Doing so violates the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). This applies to direct and indirect requests for ASL financial services. For example, if a caller using video relay service calls a bank, the bank can’t refuse the call.
