— deaf-friendly store and hearing-friendly store

Ethik Event is a French events management company with
a strong interest in the needs of the deaf and of the
disabled. Aware that many hearing merchants do not realize
how unfriendly their stores and shops are to the deaf,
Ethik Event has come up with two demonstrations. First
model store is hearing-friendly; the second model store is
deaf-friendly. The deaf-friendly store has flashing signalers,
cash registers with display read outs, captions on their
mounted TV sets, catalogs with pictures and descriptions,
etc. So far, these demonstrations were a success in
Paris and Grenoble. There are plans to set up these
demonstrations in other major European cities.
