[Athen] Unique tech question involving ASL

Hi all ATHENites,

We had an inquiry at SOU today from a ranger in the NPS concerning a technology solution to offer ASL on demand in the caves. Anyone have any solutions, suggestions or can point us in the right direction? Currently there is a 2-week advance notice for the Deaf /HOH patrons to request a live interpreter for the cave tour.

There is no wifi or phone service in the caves, so a remote VI service is (probably) out. Ranger wants it to be completely spontaneous, not a digital video of interps. The ranger suggested some type of (unknown) app could be loaded on an iPad or iPhone with pre-recorded video interpreting. If flash cameras are prohibited, are cell phones cell phone flash lights and iPad screens also prohibited?

Speech to Avatars? Any ideas, however odd, are welcome.

Thank you all in advance.
