Top stories about the deaf:
Discover Video has added the captioning capability
to its videos, saying this capability is automatic.
Not sure what automatic means – professional
captioning services or voice recognition captioning.
If it is the latter, then we will see captioning
mistakes.
The Corpus Christi Deaf Community is upset about
deaf teachers not being provided with interpreters
in the classrooms. They have called for an
emergency town hall meeting to deal with this issue.
The Pawtucket (RI) city council has designated the month of
September as the Deaf Awareness Month.
Virginia prison authorities found a cell phone in the
cell of a deaf-blind inmate, and wanted to transfer
him to a higher security facility. The inmate is
protesting, saying the cell phone was planted inside
the cell and that he could never be able to use it
because of his deafness.
The College of Southern Nevada (a 2-year college)
graduated its first class of ASL interpreters.

This week’s ASL video in youtube
A DEAF CHILD FROM A VERY SMALL TOWN
    Many small towns have deaf children.
When a child is deaf, this becomes a problem
with the parents and with the education
people.
    The choices are:
1. send the child to a residential school
2. hire a full time interpreter for him in hearing school
3. hire a full time teacher for him in hearing school
4. family to move to a big city where deaf schools
are located.
  Always a difficult decision to make.

Lip reading tale
In a camp of deaf and hearing kids, a deaf
kid was chatting with a hearing kid.
The deaf kid thought the hearing kid asked:
What germ are you in school?
The hearing kid actually asked:
What term are you in school?

This week’s ASL video in youtube
BEST OR WORST ACTOR?
    Many years ago people said the world’s best actor
was John Barrymore.
    Again, people said he was the world’s worst actor!
Why?
    Barrymore could act very well in silent movies,
but could not act well with talkie movies!
    We have wished we had a deaf actor that was much
better than Barrymore during silent movie years!

COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR – continuing series
“One of our speakers at the event today will be speaking Spanish. Can you
produce English captions for the entire audience?”
When asked that question at the spur of the moment, a CART captioner may
feel totally overwhelmed.
Although it is possible for a CART captioner to be bilingual, it is not a
requirement for the job. A few CART captioners may be fluent enough in a
foreign language to be able to translate what is being said in another
language into English before writing it on the steno machine, but there
are not very many.
You may want to check with the company providing CART well in advance of
the assignment and see if they do have any bilingual people they can
contact to take this job.
However, the way that a situation like this would usually be handled is
that, in addition to a CART captioner, a Spanish interpreter would also
need to be hired. As the interpreter translates what is said into English,
the CART captioner would then be able to take down whatever is said in
English.
Some people look at CART captioners as machines and assume that they can
write anything that is being said, no matter what language it is in. That
is not true. CART captioners need to be fluent in whatever language or
languages they will be providing captions for.

News of the Week – Looking Back 10 Years Ago:
    How bad is shortage of interpreters at mainstreamed
programs?
    Pretty much bad as far as deaf students in
Portsmouth, New Hampshire are concerned. They are
being forced to transfer to different schools because
of shortage of interpreters at their old schools.
    The students are protesting the transfers. Will
the school district listen to them?
