DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – June 22, 2021

— daily plans of a deaf-blind woman

Talice Connelly, a deaf-blind Canadian, was
profiled in a newspaper story. Part of it
says that she organizes her day every morning.
She goes through a row of baskets – items
such as sweatband, scissors, food, clothing,
driftwood in each of these baskets. It leads
her on from task to next task for that day.
Next day, different tasks, different objects.

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – June 21, 2021

— will never be obsolete

There was a story that AI will make interpreters
and sign language obsolete.

DeafDigest says NEVER!

 

— Self-Checkout Or Human Cashier

Which is better for deaf? Self-Checkout Or Human Cashier
in a supermarket or a chain store? Self-Checkout
avoids hassles with hearing cashiers. But Human Cashier
will solve pricing issues for you that the Self-Checkout
cannot solve!

 

— the librarian and the hearing aid battery

A library web site said their librarians can
help hearing aid users place their hearing
aid battery into their hearing aids.

Years ago, library was just books – times
have changed!

Top stories about the deaf:

What is Deaf Divide?

There is a story about it saying that
one group supports CI whereas the other
group opposes CI.

………..

An article said that there is no shame in
wearing a hearing aid because it is becoming
more invisible – same as people saying
deafness is an invisible disability!

……….

A newspaper story said ASL means Automobile
Sign Language, profiling a deaf mechanic
inventing auto-related sign language to
communicate with his boss and his fellow
mechanics.

…………….

Kenya has a law, that has been denounced
as discriminatory – the Elections Act
that requires deaf candidates to be fluent
in Kenyan Sign Language – because what
if the deaf candidate is oral and knows
no sign language!

………………

A deaf Egyptian was arrested in Canada
while seeking asylum. The authorities
confiscated his hearing aid recharger
and only gave him one fresh battery.
This left him unable to communicate
with his hearing aid. The Canadian
Human Rights group is looking into
this case.

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.

This week’s ASL video in youtube

DEAF PARTNER NOT GETTING ALONG WITH HEARING PARTNER
Partnerships are like marriages. Some partners get
along with each other. Some don’t.
The same goes for deaf/hearing partnerships. During
the 1980’s a deaf partner did not get along with the
hearing partners and this partnership broke up.
For a while after the break up, the deaf person got
no sales. He was puzzled but found out that the ex-partner
“stole” his sales when hearing customers used voice
telephone to place orders. The hearing partner knew
the old password and the old codes.
The deaf man had the password and the codes changed.
Suddenly his business went up.
