DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – January 16, 2019
— The Microsoft Disability Answer Desk
How busy is the Microsoft Disability Answer Desk?
It averages 550 calls per day from the deaf and the
disabled, asking for assistance on these Microsoft
products and software.
— an unusual owner of a small town coffee cafe
Seth Hill, who owns the Tarot Cafe in Watertown, NY,
is somewhat unusual. One night every week he hosts
ASL lessons and it is open to the public. Purchase
of a cup of coffee is not required. How many business
owners would host these ASL classes on a weekly
basis? Not too many, DeafDigest thinks so.
— big time actress turns down a fake-deaf role
DeafDigest praises Jameela Jamil, a well known British
actress. She was offered a fake-deaf role in an upcoming
movie and turned it down. She said that this deaf role
should go to a more deserving deaf actress. Actors and
actresses, desperate for roles would accept any role.
Not Jameela Jamil!
