Sign Language Interpreters at Senate and Capitol

The Congressional Special Services Office has Certified Sign Language Interpreters on staff.  Interpreting services are available for official activities including public tours, press conferences and constituents’ meetings with Senators and staff.  Requests for interpreting services must be arranged through either of an individual’s Senators.

The CSSO does not provide interpreters for committee meetings, unless requested by a Senator to enable a specific witness to communicate with committee members.  Requests for interpreting services for audience members who are deaf or hard of hearing should be directed to the committee holding the specific hearing.
