Sorenson Communications, LLC Introduces the First ASL Phone Tree for Deaf People

Sorenson Communications, LLC introduced Sorenson Bridge, the first videophone tree designed specifically for users of American Sign Language (ASL). Sorenson Bridge and its patented technologies were created as a way for schools, agencies, businesses and organizations that serve the Deaf to efficiently communicate in ASL, enhance the way they conduct business and strengthen the Deaf communities they serve. Sorenson works with these organizations to customize a phone tree menu for each organization's unique needs. Until the introduction of Sorenson Bridge, Deaf callers had to navigate audio phone trees through sign language interpreters, a time-consuming and often tedious process. Now, with Sorenson Bridge, callers see and choose from video menus shown in ASL. Through the use of a keypad, callers select the option of the intended call recipient or department. For example, a caller may choose tech support, a receptionist or the accounting department from the visual phone tree menu. As ASL is the native language for most Deaf people, the visual phone tree is a welcome and empowering technology. As a part of testing, Sorenson implemented Sorenson Bridge at the Indiana School for the Deaf (ISD) and worked alongside ISD to customize a menu that would be convenient and intuitive for Deaf parents and vendors who called the school.
