— interpreters hate it

All interpreters hate it when they are asked to
fingerspell a 20-letter word for a deaf scientist
during a Science Conference! This is why many
deaf scientists discuss with interpreters – before –
the conference begins, to “invent” signs for possible
long-word science words that may be brought up.


— theatrical play: open captions or interpreters

Which is best? Open captions or interpreters
during a theatrical play. There are many deaf
people that love open captions. Again there
are many other deaf people that love
interpreters. No-win situation for play
producers? Yes!
