“Signal Caller” at Harris Communications

Professional quarterback Lane Patterson has a life-altering moment when he experiences sudden deafness. At the urging of a friend, he reluctantly agrees to learn American Sign Language.

An eccentric teacher enters Lane’s life and thus begins his journey to learning sign language-and a new way of life.

“Signal Caller” is an intriguing story where the skills of sign language and signal-calling come together under unique circumstances.

Order “Signal Caller” (B1261) at Harris Communications for $10.75.

Top stories about the deaf:

Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences, Yakima, WA,
was ordered by a federal judge to give accommodations
to a deaf chiropractic student. The university said they
will accommodate him.

The original 44-acre campus of American School for the Deaf
will be split into three parts per approval from the city
council. One part is for the school itself; the second
part is for a hearing school and the third part is to
be sold. A big concern is automobile traffic these parcels may generate.

The saga of the old campus of Virginia School for the
Deaf & Blind at Hampton continues. After years of
political squabbling, the school was closed for good
in 2008. Yet, the campus buildings have not yet
been converted for other purposes. Something to do
with ownership issues, deed issues and political issues.

New slate of top officers of the Pennsylvania Society for
Advancement of the Deaf are Jeffrey Yockey, president;
Kathie Gray-Plotkin, first vice president; Sharon Antal;
second vice president; and Mark Marcellino, Treasurer.

The deaf of Oregon are upset over the way the state
Department of Human Services is handling the interpreting
contract with a private company without asking for input.

A. The media says lipreading is easy and so, many

Rene Pellerin’s corner:

PowerPoint Presentations

Doing presentations accessible viewing will be needed.

Here are samples:
– Use dark background with light color fonts. The font should be large and bold! This will help reduce the glare for people who have Usher Syndrome and many others vision related issues.

– Also have your PowerPoint available via electronic format for people to read on their own devices, such as (iPad, laptop, etc). This can also allow reading via Braille!

Hey, the PowerPoint will still look lovely!
(And access should win the beauty competition anyway!)
