Minimum of 5 minutes. Maximum of 15 minutes. Do NOT listen to the sermon before interpreting it. Feel free to prep in other ways: read the sermon description (as long as it isn’t a transcript), watch other videos by the same speaker, etc. Often we interpret sermons that are unrehearsed and I want to see a sample of that. For Deaf interpreters, please find a transcript of a speaker (from a book, a video, or a podcast transcription). We will have transcribed video work for DI's and I would like to see your work. DropBox is the preferred format. If you are unable to do DropBox, you may submit via Google Drive or YouTube.
