— cost to set up Deaf Village

DeafDigest mentioned that Wilson, North Carolina
government and business officials are pushing
for a deaf village, named Wilson Village, to be
set up near Eastern North Carolina School for
the Deaf. Cost? At least 10 million dollars,
perhaps even higher.

 
— a Deaf Bulb

What is a Deaf Bulb? A small company is coming
up with a smoke detector for the deaf. Cost
of the Deaf Bulb? Approximately $100, but it
will last 27 years. Doing the math, it would
be $3.70 per year or 31 cents per month.
Color of the bulb? Red! Why? Don’t know
Still, the $100 tag will scare off many
deaf people.

 

— CAAG VRS to the rescue?

CAAG VRS, a relay provider, has asked the FCC
for permission to provide internet relay for
the deaf-blind. Deaf-blind only? DeafDigest
feels it will be applicable to the non-signing
deaf. Will FCC OK it? Yes, as long as CAAG VRS
meets all of the criteria FCC requires of all
providers.
