British Sign Language Interpretation from home
The British Sign Language (BSL) Video Relay Service enables you to contact us using BSL. The service connects you with a qualified BSL interpreter via the webcam on your device, who will be able to relay your conversation to one of our Customer Services assistants.
You can use the service 8am-6pm Monday to Friday (excluding bank and public holidays) and it is free from your home computer or mobile device.
How do I use it?
The first time you use the SignVideo service you will need to download a Live Plug in. This makes sure that you have good video quality and that your calls are secure. Please follow the instructions once you are connected to the Web Access page. You'll only need to do this the first time you use the service.
When you click on the 'Use SignVideo' button it will open a new window where you will be connected to the interpreter via video. To make sure we can get you through to the right person at M&S Bank as quickly as possible please make sure you have all your details ready.
