The Online Interpretation Service (SIEL) facilitates the communication between deaf and hearing people who are in the same space by having an online interpreter available to them, which can be accessed from a computer, a tablet or a cell phone with internet connection and Audio amplification system and microphone.

Through the SIEL, deaf people and listeners will be able to communicate in the user's points of attention of public and private entities of the whole country, in meetings of work or in medical consultations.

The ICT Appropriation Tool offers contents and spaces where sign language and written language prevail for access to information, learning, understanding, knowledge building and above all the motivation to use ICT in the deaf,

The Relay Center constantly trains virtual interpreters on topics such as communication, translation, sign language, deaf culture and customer service.

The mobile application is a virtual platform that can be downloaded to a cell phone or tablet and is useful because it allows communication through text chat or video chat.
