o Question: How should one communicate with an interpreter
o Key Answer points:
§ Discuss subject-related signs with the interpreter before speaking to audience. For example, if you will be using a lot of science-related terms, discuss these terms beforehand so the interpreter will know how to relay the information
§ When talking, look at your audience, not the interpreter.
§ Allow the interpreter time to catch up when discussion goes from one person to another
