Posted on November 25, 2015

Santander UK, in partnership with SignVideo (a supporter of this site), has launched a Video Relay Service for the British Sign Language (BSL) community.

The service is available for all account servicing, supporting customers with many of their day to day banking queries and transactions.

The service enables deaf BSL customers to place video calls to Santander via a free and secure video link on its website. The video call instantly connects to a BSL interpreter at SignVideo, who then phones the Santander contact centre relaying the conversation in real time.
