Technology now provides for an interim solution in the form of off-site services, called Video Remote Interpreting/Transliterating (VRI). VRI uses video conferencing technology, equipment, and a high-speed Internet connection to provide the services of a qualified transliterator, from a remote location.
I was unable to find a CLT to be physically present at my meeting, but Cue For You Skyped into it. It worked out perfectly! I'm kind of amazed that I haven't had it before. Now when I travel, I think I'm going to ask for remote transliteration in areas where CLTs are not available. I'm also kind of tempted to have remote transliteration where CLTs are available--it makes the whole affair more private than public. Which is what it's supposed to be.
