This week’s ASL video in youtube
FINGERPOINTING – RUDE OR NOT RUDE?
Is it rude to point at someone? In Hearing Culture,
it is rude.
In Deaf Culture, it is ok.
Which is better – Deaf Culture or Hearing Culture?
No culture is better than other; we must accept different
cultures

THE DEAF HAIRSTYLIST’S BEST FRIEND
We have a few deaf hairstylists. Some of them
are great and earn a lot of money in tips from
happy customers.
For one deaf hairstylist, what is her best
friend?
Is it an interpreter? No. Is it deaf customers?
No. Is it a boss that is easy to read lips? No.
The best friend is the hairstyling magazines.
She would show the magazine to the hearing
customers and ask them to point to the picture
of the hairstyle they want!
This is communication in pictures.

COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR – continuing series
Questions were raised recently when captions for a televised program
displayed content for a totally different program that was being aired at
the same time. People asked how that could possibly happen.
What some caption viewers may not understand is that most “live�
television programs are being captioned remotely. Almost no TV stations
hire captioners who work from their studios to provide the captions.
There are a few realtime captioners who work from the offices of the large
captioning companies, but the vast majority of broadcast captioners work
from their home offices.
When a captioner captions a program in realtime, they must dial in to an
encoder at the television station. At that point, mistakes can happen. The
captioner could dial the wrong telephone number. An engineer at the
captioning company or television station could make a mistake.
Although it is regrettable that the television show had erroneous captions
for the first few minutes, the mistake was caught and fixed by the people
involved.
