— an alley clarification

This past weekend DeafDigest ran a video about
“Deaf-Mute Property” in Little Rock, valued
at $181,000. It was just learned that it
was an alley behind the old Arkansas School
for the Deaf before the school moved to
its present location. This part of the

— worst manners: deaf jobs-seeker arrested

A deaf man, seeking a job in a bank, was
arrested in public. He attended a speech by a
government official, ran over to him and
handed him a note on the stage. The police
stopped him and arrested him, thinking he
was going to cause a riot. The note was to
ask for a job in a bank. At this point, the
police does not know what to do with him,
because what he did was bad manners, but not
a crime. It could only happen in India!


— two choices for deaf that love opera

There are deaf people that love opera. There are
two choices – to watch the surtitles, or to wear
captioning glasses. What is the difference?
Hard to explain – but surtitles (on a stage screen)
shows edited translations of what is being sung.
Captions is word for word and includes “interruptions”
such as phone is ringing, door knocking, etc.
