LATE DEAFNESS IN IRELAND
    There was a newspaper story of some people in
Ireland suffering from late-deafness. They were
exposed to heavy noises for many years.
    The newspaper said that some of them wait
15 years before finally seeing a doctor
or an audiologist about their late deafness.
    Why 15 years? Good question.

HEARING PEOPLE DON’T REALIZE TTY MACHINES ARE OLD FASHIONED
    We hate it when we use the video relay to speak to a bank or a
credit card company or a department store, and they tell us
we must use our TTY machine to communicate with them.
    We try to explain to them that many deaf people have
stopped using the TTY because it is old fashioned.
    And when they don’t believe us and continue to tell
us to use our TTY, we only get more frustrated.

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:
Sending Holidays greeting cards to DeafBlind people is great.
They will appreciate the cards from many of you.
There are ways to make the greeting cards accessible.
For low vision, use dark thick sharpie marker and print large.
You can even use word.doc and make bold large font and insert
in the card.
For Braille users, you can contact your local agency for the Blind for
advice or possible printing one for you in Braille.
If you Google search Braille greeting cards you will find several
businesses print them.
You can also send greeting cards electronically.  There are many ecards
available.
However not all ecards are accessible for Braille users.
We, DeafBlind people get greeting cards, but they can be hard to read,
you can volunteer and visit them and help them read the holidays cards!
Rene’s show business started in year 2010 and it focuses on the
Deaf-Blind.
