I think we’ll come out a little better (maybe $500) using the company in 
Savannah.  I’m surprised this Atlanta company isn’t much higher, but the 
interpreter from Atlanta was willing to waive the hotel.  Maybe that one was 
just going to stay with the Savannah interpreter.  (But, I sort of wonder if 
the one in Atlanta might be good friends with Galloway and was planning to stay 
with him?)  He might be disappointed if that was the case.

Is everyone good with me e-mailing Mr. Galloway and let him know that we intent 
to contract with Savannah Speech & Hearing for two ASL certified interpreters?

Mrs. Teague,
Did you have an estimate on what GISN would charge to provide the one local and 
one Atlanta-based interpreter?  Mr. Galloway is the only hearing impaired 
attendee we have.  We may have another option locally for two ASL certified 
interpreters in Savannah, but I wanted to get your cost first, just to make 
sure it wouldn’t be less expensive, even with the increased travel.  Thanks!

Thank you so much, Noralee.  I will process an estimate of the cost for you.
I will do an estimate showing the cost of the local interpreter and one 
traveling from Atlanta.
Do you know if Don Galloway is the only deaf person attending?  Sometimes an 
additional person attends and when we have a team of two interpreters, they 
stay together.  We do not split the team up.  They work in unison.
If an additional deaf person attends you would need an additional team for that 
He will most likely want to meet the interpreters at Registration the first day 
and decide what events he will attend.

If you can ensure that the interpreter will have good placement at the front of 
the auditorium and that there is clear line of sight for Don, that would be 

Also spot lights aimed directly at the interpreters will blind them.  Don may 
decide where he wants to sit so that he can see the presenters and the 
interpreters, who may be seated on the floor in front of the stage or standing 
on the stage.  Some hearing people may feel that the interpreters can be  
distracting,  This includes the presenters themselves.  It’s best to let Don 
take the initiative on placement and accommodation access.

Some interpreters appreciate “FEED BACK SPEAKERS”, that are placed on the floor 
near them.  The interpreters can move them and be able to adjust the volume.  
That way, the interpreters can hear the presenters.  As we get closer, I can 
check with the accommodations in the rooms you will use, to see if they are 
held in large ballrooms or smaller board rooms.

Thank you!
