– What the stories are saying about the deaf?

We have a number of deaf hairdressers in USA. Do they
get together, either in person or on-line for advice,
support, tips and to share tricks of trade? No, but
it may be different in England as far as deaf
hairdresser Jean West is concerned. She has set up
a website to help other deaf hairdressers in England.
She said that many hearing patrons do not trust deaf
hairdressers. This forces the deaf hairdressers to do
their best to win confidence of hearing patrons. Once
this is done, these hearing patrons would then trust the deaf hairdressers.

The Washington Redskins is a perfect example of being
penny wise, but pound foolish. They thought they were
saving money by refusing to caption their public
address announcements. This caused a lawsuit by three
deaf avid Redskins fans. The deaf fans won but the
Redskins would not readily pay up the legal fees,
claiming they were being overbilled. The judge
would not agree and the Redskins are out $260,000.

– Very Hot News

Tentatively set for September 29th is a ceremony on
the Ogden Campus of the Utah Schools for the Deaf and the Blind. It is to formally name the school as the Utah Schools for the Deaf and the Blind – Kenneth Burdett School of the Deaf. Burdett, a deaf man, was
a legendary figure on the campus of the Utah school.
DeafDigest is not sure if it is the first time a school
for the deaf has been named after a deaf person.

More information is at:
http://deafdigest.com/burdette/

– Thursday September 8th

The famous (or infamous) Australian accent will be
recorded by a group of Australian universities,
by sampling 1,000 speakers. There are several purposes
of this project – but one of them is deaf-related –
to help the deaf with future voice recognition software.

– Friday September 9th

The dispatch people in the Rockingham and Hamlet
police departments (NC) have been taught in a workshop
on how to deal with deaf 911 calls – both on TTY and on
Voice Carry Over.

– Saturday September 10th

Enoc Castro, who is deaf and repairs shoes for a living at a
shoemaking shop in Morris Plains, NJ, shocked everyone, including
his employer and his family members. He, on his own initiative,
decided to study to become an American citizen and he passed
everything with flying colors. They simply could not believe
a deaf person could do it on his own!

…..

Deaf Miscellaneous stuff:

Lipreading being used less and less in the United Kingdom?
Two years ago there were over 420 lipreading classes and
19 in Wales. The numbers are much lower these days because
of lack of government financial support to keep classes going;
angry hard of hearing advocates are saying that the British
government is discriminating against the deaf and the hard
of hearing non-signers!

SOME HEARING PEOPLE ARE AFRAID OF THE DEAF
In some offices, there are some hearing people
that are afraid to communicate with the deaf.
They do not want to write notes. Instead they try to
communicate with crazy behavior.
Examples are:

– waving the workpaper left to right back and forth
– pointing at the workpaper without explaining why
– showing the workpaper about 5 feet away from the deaf person
making it hard to read

Is it funny or is it sad?

DO WE HAVE A DEAF BODY LANGUAGE?
Do we have a Deaf Body Language when these deaf people
try to communicate with the hearing?
Sometimes DeafDigest editor notices a “Deaf Body Language”
in a store or a restaurant or even at Starbucks or anywhere.
It may be a deaf person that DeafDigest editor does not
know. But after watching that person for a minute or two
then it becomes obvious that he is deaf.
Deaf Body Language different from Hearing Body Language?

AN AWESOME FOOTBALL VIDEO
Do take a look at this awesome football video at:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0NTtulVoUek
It was filmed by Michael Pimentel, the professional
sports photographer. He is deaf.
He shot these scenes with a GoPro. What is a GoPro?
It is a camera stationed on top of the photographer’s
head!
And it was his first time with that camera.

A HUGE INDUCTION LOOP
If you wear a hearing aid and root for the
Michigan State University basketball team,
then possibly the world’s biggest induction
loop is at the basketball arena.
The Breslin Center, the home of the basketball
team, seats 14.759 fans and the loop is everywhere.

Cell Phones Which Are Compatible with Hearing Aids

As a service to hearing aid owners BHI is providing a complete
(to their knowledge) list of U.S. phones which are most
compatible with hearing aids. By compatibility we mean they
carry the very highest rating of M4/T4:

* M4 indicates there is the least likelihood of microphone
interference and
* T4 means there is the greatest likelihood of telecoil coupling
compatibility with the cell phone.

The following is a list of the most hearing aid compatible cell
phones. To find out more about a specific model go to
www.phonescoop.com or click on the model.

Deaf Question of the Week:

Q. Why is it difficult for young, healthy deaf men to find
employment in “dangerous jobs”?

A. By dangerous, we are talking about fighting fires, fighting
crime, working on oil rigs, working in the railroad maintenance
yards, etc. These jobs are so dangerous that it requires hearing
people to alert each other when danger is near them. This is not to say the deaf cannot do these tasks – just that they cannot hear safety warnings from fellow co-workers.

Rene Pellerin’s corner: 

I use my computer a lot for both business and social purposes. 

At home, I have ZoomText which helps by enlarging fonts and pictures.

However, it is very difficult to use other computers when I travel.

There are tips to help you read better without ZoomText.

For a PC, you can open a web page with your Internet Explorer.
You can change/zoom your window by pressing Ctrl and + (Control and plus keys).
It will enlarge the page.  To reduce the size Ctrl and – (Control and minus keys)
