Thank you, André, for this information. There are a lot of languages ;-)

I am not sure how this will work out logistically, but we will do our best for everyone -

If you can recommend an interpreter to me privately, and give me a contact email for that person, I can contact them to ask if they can interpret your three presentations…Many thanks!

There is always a chance someone might just see it on YouTube later I guess, and later we could always attached interpretations to YouTube videos, but during the LIVE presentation on Google Hangouts, they have provided the world with a “Sign Language Interpreter App” that places a little bubble for the interpreter to the side of the presenter, and if the interpreter has their own computer, they can appear in that bubble and sign for you while you are speaking…I think that is pretty cool! They also provide a captioning tool for live captioning - wow - such opportunities ;-)
