How do I use the ezispeakhealth add-on?

The ezispeakhealth™ add-on is used when you are in a call with a client or patient.

You can choose to invite an interpreter into your call when your client or patient is present or, you can invite the interpreter into the call prior to your client or patient entering. This will allow you a moment to introduce yourself and advise the interpreter of the format of the consultation. When you're both ready, you can invite the patient into the call. 

Follow these instructions for next steps:

  1. From within the main Coviu screen, click on the OPEN EZISPEAKHEALTH button ezispeakhealth button on the lower right hand corner. This will bring up the Add Interpreter menu.
