Domestic or International Communication.
Where Everyone is Heard.

Dialog One provides communication services that are on a whole new level. We support professional service providers and their language proficiency customers, with other services for the hearing, speech and visually impaired clientele. Our technology allows us to offer services over the phone, video remote, in person, written translation, website localization, and other custom communications. We work on a project-to-project basis as well as on-demand, or through scheduled sessions.

OTHER SERVICES : Dialog One is considered a comprehensive language service provider (LSP) and we certainly are, however we do more than just provide language services. We educate organizations on how to work with communities with limited English, hard of hearing, mute, blind/low vision as well as to empower those service providers to listening from an empowering context to best serve these communities.

CONSULTING :
Blindness/Low Vision Consulting Services
Let Dialog One educate and inspire your organization to understand blindness and how low vision impairment communities can be included in your communication.

Those with blindness/low vision need to access your information daily for many reasons. However, you might not know how to support their access to that information. What technology is needed? What are the different formats? Are your website or social media platforms accessible for those with blindness/low vision? Answering questions like these allow you to define your organization’s commitment to customer communication, ensuring you and ALL of your customers and business partners (current and potential) maintain an excellent relationship.

Dialog One is your best resource for professional information on low vision impairment. Let Dialog One identify wherever you could make a difference for this community. Let us be your organization’s guide to unparalleled accessibility; establish or cement your leadership with your industry!

TRAINING :
Empowered By Listening
Would you like to work in an environment where you, your coworkers, and your clients are being listened to powerfully?
Empowered by Listening SM, challenges participants to truly inquire about and assess the phenomena of communication. Participants will personally examine their points of view and concerns that get in the way of hearing what someone is saying and precisely conveying that to someone else. At some point in our lives, each of us have experienced being misunderstood. We say one thing, but someone else hears another. We direct a person to do something, the person ends up doing something else. It’s frustrating, frequent, and becomes particularly acute in cross-cultural communication.

Empowered by Listening is a fundamental inquiry and exploration of language and communication (both verbal and nonverbal). It unfolds and expands our ability to listen and speak with intentionality; communicate responsibly and accurately; honor other points of view and create workability in our personal lives and our organizations.
