JAL to Provide New Sign Language Interpretation Service

December 12, 2018 Aviation No Comments Email Email

Japan Airlines announced a new service to improve accessibility for customers using Japanese sign language. (JSL) Starting today, JAL will offer video remote interpreting services at select customer service centers in Japan.

The JAL Group is continuously working on improving accessibility standards to help create and support a society where everyone can enjoy the joys of travel. Based on an IT service developed by ShuR Co., Ltd., the sign language interpretation service can be accessed at call centers in Japan, check-in counters at Tokyo-Haneda airport`s domestic terminal, and at the JAL Plaza ticketing counter located in downtown Tokyo, providing an option to communicate via sign language with JAL`s representatives.

In prior cases, the company had offered email, fax, and handwriting tools as a way to communicate but with the introduction of the new service, the carrier will now offer an option to communicate through sign language. *
