DeafDigest – 29 January 2019

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – January 29, 2019


— thinking English or thinking ASL

A posting in on a science web site asked this

What language do deaf people think in?

There were responses; those that use ASL would think
in ASL; those that don’t use ASL think in English.
These responses are pretty much correct.


— lawsuit filed against Consumer Reports

Consumer Reports enjoys a great repuation for
being neutral when evaluating different
products. It, however, did not prevent
lawsuit being filed – for not providing
captions on its videos!


— yet another deaf-hearing airport squabble

Two deaf people got into a squabble with the Delta
people at the airport in Detroit. This is not the
first time Delta found itself in trouble. Not sure
how it happened? Lack of communications or
something else? Always two versions of an
incident, with fingers pointing at each other.
One thing is for sure – an angry agent dealing
with an angry passenger may possibly lead to
something ugly!
