Austin Interpreters for the Deaf presents Deafblind Interpreting: A Panel Discussion This workshop brings together interpreters from across Austin and the surrounding area to share their experiences. This panel session will focus on interpreting for deafblind consumers. The panelists have been chosen based on their expertise in a specific field and the years of experience interpreting in that field.
