DeafDigest – 27 September 2018

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – September 27, 2018

— advice from owner of a movie theater

A small town movie theater owner gave this
advice – do not wait until the last minute
to request captioning devices. He was talking
about requests made just a few minutes before
the filming was to begin. He suggested that
requests be made at least 20 minutes in
advance – in order to make sure everything
works with these devices.


— 3-times a year vs 3-times per weekend

DeafDigest editor bumped into an acquaintance
yesterday. He grew up in low-population, but
big state. He compared the deaf social life
in a low-population state with a high population
city. In a low-population state, deaf events
take place three times per year. In a high
population area, deaf events take place three
times per weekend. Some deaf people crave quiet
life with big countryside mountains. Some
deaf people crave a lot of social events.


— many apartment landlords unaware of deaf rights

For some reason, many apartment landlords do not
realize nor understand that the deaf have rights
to interpreters. These landlords would say that it
is OK for them to have interpreters but that they
would have to pay for the sign language services.
This is one big reason the federal government has
been filing many landlord lawsuits.
