Top stories about the deaf:

In Malaysia, low pay is the reason for the difficulty
in hiring interpreters. This is what one activist
has complained.

The Rhode Island Association of the Deaf has filed
a lawsuit, accusing Lifespan of discrimination for
not providing interpreters for deaf patients in hospitals.

Montana School for the Deaf and Blind is facing a
drop of $330,000 from the state budget. If this
happens then some positions will be cut.

In Liberia, a deaf organization accused
the National Elections Commission of bypassing
the deaf, thus violating the United Nations Convention on the rights of persons living with disabilities.
They say that Liberia does not train deaf leaders on
how to help the other deaf during the election.

In Tamil Nadu (India), six of every 1,000 children
are deaf. A physician said these deaf births
would have been preventable if proper medical
procedures were followed.

This week’s ASL video in youtube

A MYSTERY DURING TV MOVIE THAT DEAF DON’T KNOW ABOUT
Many deaf people love to watch captioned movies
on TV.
There is a mystery about it that deaf people don’t
know about.
For example – there was a movie about a family
in Ireland. A woman, from Buffalo, NY, moved to
Ireland and fell in love with an Irish man.
The actress who played the role of a Buffalo
woman was born in Ireland.
A hearing person watching the movie would know
about these different accents, and think the plot
is a fake.
A deaf person would not know it.

Lip reading tale

A deaf person thought a hearing person said:
Look at the rice on the farm grounds property

Deaf person is puzzled as the farm grounds does
not grow rice

Hearing person actually said:
Look at the rise on the farm grounds property

This week’s ASL video in youtube

A LOST DEAF CELL PHONE
When a hearing loses his cell phone in his
home, he uses another telephone to ring up the
number. When he hears the ring, he tries to locate
the lost cell phone.
When a deaf person loses his cell phone, it is
too bad!

COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR – continuing series

One of the reasons for some of the captioning bloopers that we see is
because stenocaptioners write words phonetically rather than letter
by letter as a typist would type words.

Court reporters, CART providers, and stenocaptioners all use the same type of steno machines with the same keyboard. Before the days of realtime translation, court reporters could just write words that sounded the same in the same way phonetically, and then they would figure it out when they were transcribing it.

For instance, a court reporter might write the words “there,”
“their,” and “they’re” in the same way on the steno machine.
This would be called a “conflict.”

They would enter the steno into their dictionary and then define it with the English for all three words. It might look like “there/their/they’re” when it came up on the computer screen.

When editing the transcript, the court reporter could just type a “1,” “2,” or “3” when the cursor was on the conflict, and the proper word would appear in the transcript.

News of the Week – Looking Back 10 Years Ago:

The Learning Center for the Deaf Children, Framingham,
MA, is no more!
It becomes The Learning Center for the Deaf Inc,
effective immediately.
Why the name change? As Michael Bello, TLC director
said the kids hated to be identified as “children.”
This is not all – the TLC will be renaming the
schools on their other campuses in Framingham and
Randolph.
Joked Bello “Probably much more information than
you ever wanted or needed”

note:
the school changed its name again – to Marie Philip
School. The change took place three years ago.

News of the Week – Looking Back 5 Years Ago:

Is Netflix going to settle? They have told the judge
they may work something out as far as video captioning
is concerned. As a result, the judge applied the brakes
on the lawsuit, seeing if it all works out. If it does
not work out, then the lawsuit proceeds. As always,
just stay tuned.

note:
all Netflix videos are captioned. Watching Netflix
videos has now become popular with the deaf.
