Top stories about the deaf:

Before there was a Modern Man that appeared on
the Earth, there were prehistoric Neanderthals.
How did the Neanderthals communicate with
each other? There was a discussion and some
archaeologists and linguists that felt
the Neanderthals used sign language!

………..

A state senator from Idaho has introduced a bill
to require public venue TV sets to be captioned.

……….

Lake Land College, in Illinois, will be offering
a program in TV captions for future TV captioners.

…………….

Paintings that show sign language finger spelling
has been displayed at many bus stops in Biasha,
a city in Poland.

………………

While Zoom has offered free captions, there are
still problems according to an angry deaf user.
A big problem is that while Zoom will offer
transcripts, waiting for it takes a long time!

STARBUCKS VS DEAF CLUBS
Why do many young deaf people avoid going to
deaf clubs? And why do many young deaf people
love to socialize with each other at Starbucks?
Deaf clubs are hurting because of lack of
members. And deaf people buying coffee only
helps Starbucks make money, but does not help
the Deaf Culture.

This week’s ASL video in youtube

SPANISH SIGN LANGUAGE OR SPANISH GESTURAL LANGUAGE?
Spanish Sign Language same as Spanish Gestural
Language?
Madrid is a city popular with tourists – the French,
the Italian, the Dutch and from many other countries.
Many Spanish people do not use English as second language.
There is a lot of communication struggles between tourists
and waiters, police officers, shop merchants, etc.
This is where the deaf are equal to these hearing
tourists – because all of them share communication
problems!

This week’s ASL video in youtube

SCARING THE PHARMACIST
A deaf man has problems with a pharmacist
who is afraid to communicate with the deaf.

The pharmacist would use body language
to avoid the deaf person, write a very brief
2 or 3 word note and then walk away.

Tired of pharmacist avoiding the deaf
person, he took control. He barked at her
in loud voice, with facial expressions
and gestures.

It worked. The pharmacist no longer
avoided the deaf person!

Lip reading tale

A hearing football fan was talking about assistant
football coaches with a deaf football fan.

The deaf fan thought the hearing fan said:
Shook has become a new assistant coach at Maryland

The hearing fan actually said:
Zook has become a new assistant coach at Maryland

SICK AND TIRED OF THIS CI QUESTION
A hearing stranger talks to a deaf person.

The deaf person tells the stranger he is deaf.
The stranger immediately asks the deaf person
if he has a CI.

The deaf person says no. The hearing stranger
scolds the deaf person for not having a CI.

This hearing person has the big nerve to
ask this question!

COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR – continuing series

We have been looking at different things to help us read through
captioning errors, and we have recently spent some time looking at how
stenocaptioners write vowels. Let’s take a look now at how they write
different consonants.

Captioners need to be able to write all the sounds in the English
language, but they do not have all the consonants available on the
keyboard. Therefore, they use combinations of letters to make other
letters.

The initial consonants on the keyboard are STKPWHR. Those letters are used
in various combinations to make all the sounds that words start with.

These are keys located on the left side of the keyboard, and the captioner
will use his/her left hand to depress them.

Some examples of how this works are:
TK is the steno for the letter D.
PW is the steno for the letter B.
HR is the steno for the letter L.

News of the Week – Looking Back 10 Years Ago:

The Royal National Institute for Deaf People Scotland
has complained that the deaf people are being
underserved at audiology departments, lacking the
support they deserve. And even worse, members of the
audiological staff do not communicate well with the
deaf patients.

-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

News of the Week – Looking Back 5 Years Ago:

Interpreting at the annual meeting of the American
Association for the Advancement of Science has become
a challenge for interpreter Maureen Wagner. These
sessions are heavy with terminology in science that
every day interpreters do not sign for these words.
Interpreters, not only must get advance copies of
the speeches and then to discuss with the deaf
participants their preferred signs and their preferred
sign language.
