We are now part of the Community Directory where residents from the deaf community can contact the council 'live' via a British Sign Language interpreter free of charge.
By using an app on a smartphone or tablet, users can register for an account then find the council easily in the community directory.
The council is trialling the system for three months and is talking to Deafway - the local organisation supporting deaf residents in Preston - to help get the message out to those who could benefit from using the app.
A visual demonstration is available through the SignLive Vimeo channel.
SignLive provide the first VRS service that allows a two way calling system. You will be provided with a unique extension number allowing Preston City Council to contact you directly through a British Sign Language interpreter.
