Sorenson Interpreters for FaceTime

A Powerful Combination!

Make a quick call with your friends or family on FaceTime and get the highest-quality interpreters from Sorenson at the same time!

Our Growing Ecosystem

An awesome new way to use Sorenson Relay® is here.

Apple® has introduced a new feature to FaceTime® – FaceTime links. Apple users who have updated their devices to iOS® 15, iPadOS® 15, or macOS® Monterey can create a link and use that to invite others to FaceTime, including non-Apple users. By using this link, Deaf and hearing callers can now access a Sorenson interpreter. Just fill out the simple form below and use your natural language – spoken or signed – to communicate.

Connect in Four Easy Steps

Simply create and copy the link in your FaceTime app then send it to Sorenson by filling out this form and a Sorenson interpreter will join your FaceTime call.

Step 1
In your FaceTime app, tap Create Link then tap Copy.

Step 2
Go to this form, paste the link and fill out the rest of the form, then click Send Invite.

Step 3
Go back to FaceTime and enter your FaceTime call. The interpreter will join you soon.

Step 4
Once the interpreter is there, use the same link to invite others to join you through text or email.
