He voices very well and is quite accurate in his receptive skills. He maintains proper eye contact with his deaf consumer during each call. His fingerspelling is quite clear and is performed with proper speed and accuracy. He utilizes the appropriate amount of space while interpreting and does not sign outside of his “interpreter box”. While signing, he uses the correct facial expressions to convey the hearing caller’s emotion and also uses the correct vocal intonation to represent the deaf caller as well. I do not believe that he needs to improve in any of these areas listed above.
