This week’s ASL video in youtube

KICKED OUT OF A RESTAURANT
This is a true story. A deaf woman, who is oral, entered an
ethnic restaurant in a small town.
She walked to the counter to order food. There was a communication
problem. The restaurant owner, an immigrant from Asia, could not
understand the speech spoken by the oral woman. And also, the oral
woman could not read the lips of the immigrant woman.
As a result, the immigrant woman ordered the oral deaf woman
out of the restaurant !
DeafDigest wonders why the oral woman would not point to the
menu to order the food she wanted?

This week’s ASL video in youtube

DEAF ATTORNEYS BEFORE ADA AND AFTER ADA
Before we had ADA, we had few deaf attorneys.
But after the ADA was passed we have many deaf
attorneys.
Why? Because law schools, before ADA, refused
to provide interpreters. After the ADA was passed,
these law schools had to provide interpreters!
This is why many young deaf attorneys thank
ADA.

COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR – continuing series

As the 2018 National Court Reporting and Captioning Week comes to a close,
we can look back and celebrate memorable moments from across the country.
This awareness week took place February 10-17, 2018.
Court reporters have had, and do have, a large impact on capturing history
for posterity. Captioners do wonderful work to help better the lives for
millions of Americans who are deaf and hard of hearing by providing
captioning in real time for live sporting and theater events, church
services, movie houses, and many other venues.
Included below are some fun and interesting facts about the court
reporting profession. We invite you to visit DiscoverSteno.org and
CaptioningMatters.org for more information.

— Capturing the record of important proceedings dates back to the
fourth century B.C.

— The ampersand (&) is one of the earliest forms of shorthand.

— There are official court reporters who are employees of the
court, freelance court reporters, broadcast captioners, and CART
captioners (Communications Access Realtime Translation—often employed in
classroom settings to assist students who are deaf and hard of hearing).

— In an emergency, broadcast captioners can provide vital
information to 48 million Americans who are deaf and hard of hearing

— Court reporters and captioners use cutting-edge technology to
bring the spoken word accurately to text in real time.

The crackdown on workers brought in from

For past several years this circus has employed

Not any more. Instead of being productive
North Americans, they are sitting home in
Mexico.
