We are your experts in the field of accessibility for people who are Deaf and hard of hearing. Canadian Hearing Services (CHS) offers a range of services to open lines of communication, break down barriers and ensure you comply with legal requirements for inclusive business practices and provision of services.
We offer one-stop access to a full range of services to help businesses identify current communication barriers, meet accessibility needs, and comply with all aspects of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA).
From translation to filming and editing, we work with you to improve accessibility for your Deaf and hard of hearing customers and employees by developing American Sign Language (ASL) or la langue des signes québécoise (LSQ) content for your website, video streaming, online training and more.
Our experts work with you to assess your needs and then recommend, supply and train you on the most appropriate technology to meet accessibility standards, enhance customer service and increase business.
We help you coordinate interpreting, captioning and assistive listening systems to ensure your conferences or community consultations are fully accessible to all participants.
Our skilled interpreters offer onsite or video remote interpreting (VRI) in ASL or LSQ to ensure effective communication between Deaf, hard of hearing and hearing individuals.
We offer live, word-for-word transcription of speech to text via our Communication access real-time translation (CART) services and digital media captioning for videos and websites.
