Research Project: Sign Language Interpreting Support for Deaf University Students: How well is the current system working?


Research Question: Does the sign language interpreting support procurement process meet the needs of Deaf students and their sign language interpreters? If no, how can this process be improved?


Visit the research page for more information about the project.


Read the blog post Frances wrote for The Limping Chicken outlining some of the issues.


Frances qualified as a British Sign Language (BSL) interpreter in 2001 and recently achieved the Training, Assessment and Quality Assurance (TAQA) interpreter assessor qualification.

Frances is strong in both interpreting into and out of BSL. She is able to work in a wide range of situations, ranging across academic, business and community settings. She is able to adapt to the range of communication styles found in the Deaf community. I see her as having the ideal combination of technical, professional and social skills needed in a modern BSL interpreter.
