– reason for some web sites not deaf-friendly
Why are some websites friendly to the deaf
while others are not? If a web site is from
a store or a shop, it must follow ADA rules
on captions. But if a web site is without
a store, then it may not always follow the
ADA rules. A perfect example is Netflix
which has no video stores! This is why the
FCC and the ADA people are trying to fix it now.
– a rare picture of a whale
It is very difficult for scuba divers to take
pictures of gray whales. These whales swim far
out in the ocean, not near the beaches. One gray
whale did and the picture was taken by scuba diver
Chanon Hiatt. He is deaf. He took it on his 625th
scuba dive! He was lucky to see a gray whale
swimming around, and immediately grabbed his camera.
It took place in Redondo Beach, CA. The officers
of the Pacific Whale Watch Association were
shocked by this picture.
– most expensive deaf book in the world
What is the most expensive Deaf Book in the
world? It is the book titled “Granville
Redmond” and the price is $600.00. Why is it
so expensive? Possibly because there is only
one book remaining in the world. It is an old
book, not a new book! Who is Granville Redmond?
He was deaf, from California School for the Deaf
at Berkeley and died in 1935. He was famous
for being one of the world’s best artists and
for acting with Charlie Chaplin in a few movies.
One such movie was City Lights.
