Top stories about the deaf:

In 2009, Marywood bought the old property of the
Scranton State School for the Deaf. Six years
later, the property remains as is, as Marywood
reportedly has no plans for it!

William Parr, who is deaf, is the author of an
upcoming book that profiles the leading families
of Tyler, Texas during Civil War years. This book
is not deaf related, despite the deafness of the
author.

History was made in Texas when a DeafBlind
person was able to make a relay call with a
relay provider, helped by special equipment
and software.

Louisiana Association of the Deaf is pushing for
Deaf Child’s Bill of Rights to be enacted

The state of Massachusetts will be setting up
a new training program for interpreters in
medical settings.

ANTI-DEAF POLICE OFFICERS FIRED
There was a crime committed against a group of
deaf people. The police came to investigate
the crime, and did not arrest the hearing
criminals.
The top court was not too happy about it and
fired these police officers.
It took place in Pakistan!

SIGN LANGUAGE GESTURES THAT ARE INSULTING
The Washington Post ran a story of sign language
gestures, some of which are really insulting.
Giving examples of these insulting sign languages
was Gallaudet employee Melissa Malzkuhn. The
story will make you laugh if some of these signs
do not bother you.
But if you feel easily insulted, do not read the story.

WHAT DO INTERPRETERS HATE?

people assuming interpreters learn sign language
after dating a deaf person.

Said one interpreter:

I learned signs as a teenager on my own even before
I married my deaf spouse

COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR – continuing series

When people find out what I do for a living, one topic that many
people immediately bring up is captioning errors. People are always
reading the screens of CART providers and realtime captioners as we
write what is being said, and because we are human, there will always
be some mistakes. Captioners and CART providers cannot stop and go
back to correct mistakes. Everyone sees the mistakes that we
make.

It is very important that users of realtime captioning understand
what an acceptable error rate is and what is not acceptable.
Unfortunately, even if a captioner is writing at 99.9% accuracy,
there will still be 10 misstrokes for every 10,000 steno strokes.
People often focus on those 10 misstrokes rather than the 9,990
strokes that are correct.

To do a little comparison with something that most of us are familiar
with, imagine if you were typing on a computer keyboard and you were
typing 10,000 keystrokes without taking a break.  If you only had 10
incorrect keystrokes, you would probably be very happy with your
accuracy.

Of course, there are some captioners and captioning programs out
there that may not be doing a good job, and consumers of captioning
should voice their concerns to help to improve the quality. If there
is a mistake in every sentence or if one in every 10 or 20 words is
wrong, let the people in charge know that the captioning is not good
enough. Sometimes the people in charge have no idea what good
captioning is.

A PET PEEVE OF BEING DEAF

You have a problem with something and you walk to the
customer service booth. You tell the representative that
you are deaf; he suddenly turns on his voice volume to
very loud levels. Very embarrassing!

(Every deaf person, no matter if it is ASL, oral,
Cued Speech, late-deafened, hearing aid user, CI user,
etc, share these pet peeves. You may laugh or cry)

News of the Week – Looking Back 10 Years Ago:

Not too many of us knew who Dennis Flanagan was.
But some of us read Scientific American magazine.
Dennis, who passed away earlier in the week
at the age of 85, was deaf.
He served as the editor of Scientific
American, making it his lifetime profession.
Dennis was praised for his work in helping
the magazine raise its circulation from 40,000 to
600,000 subscribers.

-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

News of the Week – Looking Back 5 Years Ago:

A while ago the District of Columbia police department
was thinking of disbanding its special units to deal
with special communities. One of the units slated for
closing was the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Liaison Unit.
It was announced that these special units will
continue as is – much to the relief of deaf and
hard of hearing residents of Washington, DC.

Deaf Apocalypse of the Week:

Why is it that more DVDs are captioned but the songs
are not captioned? More difficult to caption songs
than to caption regular dialogue?????
