From: Japan Today, Japan - Mar 13, 2004

FUKUOKA — An interpretation service company will launch a new operation to translate sign language via videophones at counters at department stores, banks and travel agencies in the city of Fukuoka in April, it said Saturday.

With the introduction of the new service, hearing-impaired customers will be able to communicate better with shop clerks through a sign language interpretation system at the company's call center, Tisco Japan, the Fukuoka-based company, said. (Kyodo News)
