Top stories about the deaf:

Jennifer Herbold is the new superintendent
of New Mexico School for the Deaf. But everyone
knows her as she has been around at the school
in various capacities since 1999.

……..

A research team at University of Buffalo came up
with headphones that can “hear” and then translate
to ASL. It says the system can translate 40 words
and 30 easy sentences into ASL. DeafDigest wonders
if words and sentences get too complicated, will
it work?

……..

FCC is now asking if educational TV programs
actually can be accessible by the deaf or
are they getting a raw deal!

………..

The Ranking of Kings is a new video that
portrays Bojji as a powerless deaf prince.
He has found a new frined that is willing
to help him become the greatest king the
world has ever seen.

3D PRINTING MAY HELP THE DEAF
DeafDigest mentioned that 3D printing cannot work with
CI – but it may help the deaf in another way. It may
print a “perfect” hearing aid mold – the one that never
whistles and never makes your ear feel sore.

We will have to wait and see if it really will work!

OLD DEAF BOOKS AT OLD BOOKSTORES
From time to time DeafDigest editor likes to go
to private bookstores (not Barnes & Noble or Borders)
to look for interesting used books to buy.
And it is surprising to find deaf books at these
old bookstores.
He bought a deaf sports book at Cooperstown, NY
bookstore, which is near the Baseball Hall of Fame.
Also an old AAAD basketball tournament program
book at a Los Angeles bookstore. And also Doug Bullard’s
novel – Islay at a Philadelphia bookstore.

COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR – continuing series

So far we have spent most of our time looking at one-syllable words. We
also need to realize that the same principles work in multisyllable words.

If a stenocaptioner doesn’t have a brief form for a particular word, they
will stroke it out syllable by syllable. Each syllable will be written
with the left hand stroking the initial consonant, the thumbs stroking the
vowels, and the right hand stroking the final consonant.

If the captioner were to have a slip of a finger on the right hand, a
mistake could occur at the end of any syllable of a word.

Some examples of this would be:
He put ketchup and mustard on his hamburger party.
The dog was being trained to obey his matter.
Her ability to remember facts just bottles my mind.

These should be read as:
He put ketchup and mustard on his hamburger patty.
The dog was being trained to obey his master.
Her ability to remember facts just boggles my mind.

DeafDigest dedicates this edition to Leon Grant,
North Carolina, who departed us. During the sixties
and seventies, he was a Deaf Basketball Immortal.
Standing 6’8 tall, he led his deaf teams to six
national tournament championships. Among all time
deaf basketball greats on all levels over the
years, Leon was #1.

he is planning to establish a different second business –
a scallop-processing plant. He pays no attention to these
gloomy economic times and goes ahead with his plans. While
he is deaf, he does not use sign language.

Top stories about the deaf:

Wilmington, DC was widely praised for being a great
city and great location to film some Hallmark movies.
One such movie recalled was “What the Deaf
Man Heard.” People remember it even if it was an
old movie, being filmed in the 1970’s!

……..

More airports have automated announcement systems
in just a few languages. English one of them?
It wasn’t mentioned but European airports do
carry English as one of these few languages.

……..

How would a hearing director, knowing zero ASL,
communicate with two deaf actresses performing
in her play. She went to Google Meets, using
voice recognition closed captioning. Is
voice recognition closed captioning 100 percent
effective? No. But better than nothing!

………..

At the Dialogue Hub cafe in South London, hearing
patrons are not allowed to voice their drink
orders. They must use British Sign Language to
order their drinks. Yes, there are communication
signs that help the hearing learn their drink
orders!

……….

a newspaper headline said:
Accessibility in banking: how finance actually fails
when it comes to catering to customers with disabilities

With the deaf, it refers to voice as a requirement

RUDE OR NOT RUDE?
A deaf employee was arguing with a hearing employee
about a work matter.
Suddenly the hearing employee walked away. The deaf
employee screamed at him – don’t walk away. The hearing
employee ignored him.
The deaf man chased the hearing employee and saw him
on the telephone at his desk.
The deaf man realized the hearing man heard the phone
ring at his desk so went there to pick up the phone.
Was it rude or not rude? The hearing person should
have gestured that there is a phone call, but he didn’t
gesture.

TALKING TO THE DEAF PERSON OR PERSON BEHIND DEAF PERSON?
We always hate it when you think a hearing person is
talking to you.
He really wasn’t talking to you but talking to a hearing
person behind you.
You respond to the hearing person, and it can get all
very confusing at the same time!

COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR – continuing series

Our purpose in looking at how stenocaptioners write different sounds is to
help us to be able to read through captioning errors when they occur.

We have been looking at how captioners write final consonant sounds. The
final “-m” sound is written using two keys on the steno keyboard, the
final P and L.

If a captioner were to write the word “arm,” they would write the steno
ARPL. As we look at the blended sound “-rm,” we can see that if a
captioner were to accidentally drag the P or the L key, they might get
some unexpected final “-rm” sounds.

Some examples of this would be:
She always fed peanuts to the squirm in her yard.
The rocket was traveling at warm speed.
She wore a beautiful perm necklace.

These should be read as:
She always fed peanuts to the squirrel in her yard.
The rocket was traveling at warp speed.
She wore a beautiful pearl necklace.

News of the Week – Looking Back 10 Years Ago:

Sally Keyrouz, a deaf saleswoman at the MySize, a clothing
store for women in Australia, is quite popular with hearing
patrons. She knows how to help the patrons select right
clothing with right colors and right designs. As described
by an associate, she is efficient, passionate and helpful.
She did not start out to work at the clothing store, as her
previous jobs were dead ends – mostly distributing mail
at offices. Her boss said:

Sally is very good at putting customers at ease, especially as
many of our customers have body image issues

News of the Week – Looking Back 5 Years Ago:

Judy Hodak, a deaf ballet dancer with her hearing partner,
won, danced to the “Sound of Silence” theme with music
being turned off – and won rave reviews from the judges
at the Buckeye Ball in Youngstown, Ohio. One of the judges
said it was the first time he saw the music instead of hearing
it. This deaf/hearing ballet team practiced this routine
for one year before entering this regional competition.

Top stories about the deaf:

a 4-year old deaf child was dropped off at the wrong
school by a confused bus driver. Plus on another day
her bus did not show up. The angry family has made it
a local issue with a TV station.

……..

NY Senator Kirsten Gillibrand said she is pushing for
$90 million in funding NTID. DeafDigest editor says
both schools – Gallaudet and NTID are equals and so
if NTID gets that much funding, then the same should
go for Gallaudet.

The attitude among hearing people in Nigeria, according
to an activist is that the deaf people are less important
them.

This is a sad attitude.

………..

An irony in Washington, DC, which is very strong on
ADA-compliance is that there is a backlog (255 tenants)
waiting for repairs to their public housing apartment
units. The irony is that few of these residents file
ADA claims, and so, they are on the low priority
repair list. This means a longer wait for ADA-related
repairs.

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.

COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR – continuing series

As we continue looking at how stenocaptioners write final consonant
sounds, we see that a stenocaptioner uses the right index finger to
depress the final F key and the right middle finger to depress the final P
key.

Although it is not taught in all steno theories, most stenocaptioners
depress the final F and P keys together to form the final “-ch” sound.

If a captioner were to accidentally drag the P key, errors can occur that
would change the “-f” sound to the “-ch” sound.

Some examples of this would be:
He walks a mile and a hatch every day.
After exercising, her knee sometimes becomes a little stitch.
Without tenderizer, the meat was very touch.

These should be read as:
He walks a mile and a half every day.
After exercising, her knee sometimes becomes a little stiff.
Without tenderizer, the meat was very tough.

News of the Week – Looking Back 10 Years Ago:

Lidell Simpson, of United Kingdom, is deaf but is not
deaf! What is this all about? He has synesthesia, a
strange condition where five senses (touch, taste,
sound, sight, and smell) get all mixed up. When he
sees something, it translates into sound in his head.
He grew up, not understanding what was wrong with him,
until ten years ago. He has since then become an
authority on this rare condition and has been a
spokesperson at medical conferences.

News of the Week – Looking Back 5 Years Ago:

Christine VonMering-Fromer, who is deaf, has been

discrimination exists. Well, we do have a
national organization – Association of Medical
Professionals with Hearing Losses ( http://amphl.org/ )

And there are also a number of nurses at schools
for the deaf that are deaf. DeafDigest is not
sure if the deaf woman or the college administration
is aware of AMPHL.

HE ANGRY HEARING BOSS

Deaf people hate this hearing boss. He is an
immigrant with zero understanding of American
culture and American customs and American
manners.

He cannot communicate with the deaf; he hates
to write notes. When he is angry, often over
“nothing” issues, his face gets red, his lips
are locked, and his fists are also locked.

Why was he hired if he cannot communicate
with the deaf?

Because he is a MIT graduate with a “long”
list of accomplishments, and without thinking,
the agency hired him.

A day after he was hired, it was too late
to fire him!

ORAL DEAF OWNER OF TTY STORE WAS LUCKY
DeafDigest editor, years ago in early 1980’s, was visiting
San Francisco. He visited a friend who owned his own TTY store.
That friend was a strong oralist who did not understand ASL
and could not even understand simple gestures. Even worse,
his lips were very difficult to read.
During the visit, a deaf man, that used ASL, wanted to buy
a TTY. The oral owner and the ASL person could not communicate
with each other. DeafDigest editor, seeing everything, stepped in
to serve as “oral & ASL” interpreter for both men. It was
successful since deaf man bought a TTY and the oral man was
able to sell a TTY.
Whew, it was not easy!

COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR – continuing series

We have been looking at how stenocaptioners write final consonant sounds.
A stenocaptioner uses the right ring finger to depress the final L key. We
have seen that the pinkie finger depresses a number of keys, one of them
being the final T key.

There are times when a captioner intends to write the blended “-lt” sound,
and that captioner may not depress the final T key hard enough to make
contact on their steno machine. In that case, an error could be the
result.

Some examples of this would be:
They wondered whose fall it was that the accident happened.
The doctor had him till his head back.
The insect bite caused a red well to appear.

These should be read as:
They wondered whose fault it was that the accident happened.
The doctor had him tilt his head back.
The insect bite caused a red welt to appear.

Top stories about the deaf:

A deaf female athlete from India was not permitted
by the government to participate in the World Deaf
Track and Field Championships. Reason – she is the
only female in a group of 4 other male athletes.
Yes, activists are furious about it.

……..

A deaf person said he took his deafness for granted;
not really thinking about it. Then the mask made
him fully aware of his deafness!

……..

Are Deaf Actors and Stories Finally Breaking Through in Hollywood?

this is the big question right now

………..

A Center Moriches (Suffolk county, NY) boutique owner,
has allotted space in her boutique for ASL classes
for those that want to learn ASL. The owner,
Katie Goulding, is deaf.

……….

a tweet said:

I recently read about someone who is deaf and how other
people are surprised that they like music

that person is clueless. There are many deaf people that
love music and many musical events are interpreted

This week’s ASL video in youtube

EVERYONE UPSET ABOUT A LOST FILE
A deaf person works in an office; he is the only
deaf person in the office. No one communicates with him.
One day, an important “file” was missing. Everyone in
the office got upset about it and they ran all over,
looking for that missing file; going through file cabinets;
going through “in and out” mailboxes; going through
piles of paperwork on all desks.
That deaf person happened to have that “missing”
file – but no one in the office asked him about it –
until about two hours later!
Why?

DEAF HISTORY AND DEAF CULTURE RESEARCH IS VERY DIFFICULT
Is it easy to research Deaf History and Deaf Culture?
Just go to any library and find books on deafness? Just
go into any web site and google the word “deaf history”
Very difficult. Information in books and web site
is not enough. A deaf researcher must pick little
bits and pieces of information from as many as 15-20
different books or web sites and put them together.
It is the same as putting together 1,000 piece
jigsaw puzzle in one hour! It is impossible.

This week’s ASL video in youtube:
http://deafdigest.com/videos/deaf-research-difficulties/

note:
times have changed; googling the internet may have
made deaf research a bit easier, but it is not a
100 percent sure thing.

COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR – continuing series

As we continue to look at final consonants, we see that captioners write
the final “k” sound with the steno BG. They use their right middle finger
to depress the B and the ring finger to depress the G.

If the “k” sound is part of the blended “kt” sound as in the word “act,”
the captioner will then use the pinkie finger to depress the T. We have
seen that the pinkie finger depresses the final T, S, D, and Z, and
sometimes the captioner may get the D instead of the T, and an error could
be the result.

Some examples of this would be:
He was kind of rude and didn’t have very much tacked.
The strikers walked the picked line.
The rocked ship took off for the moon.

These should be read as:
He was kind of rude and didn’t have very much tact.
The strikers walked the picket line.
The rocket ship took off for the moon.

News of the Week – Looking Back 10 Years Ago:

DeafDigest also this edition to former New York
governor Hugh Carey, who departed us. Yes, he was
not deaf – but if it was not for him, there may be
no NTID on the RIT campus in Rochester, NY! As a
congressman in Washington, DC, he sponsored a bill
to create NTID.

News of the Week – Looking Back 5 Years Ago:
