— eBay hands off during deaf seller disputes

A deaf eBay participant got into a dispute with
a buyer and asked the email contact person
for assistance. Instead of responding by email,
the contact person asked the deaf person to make
a voice call. It proved to be impossible for
the deaf seller; as a result the seller plans
to drop out of eBay.


— captions must go through five different tests

When there is a new app that has captions, then it
must be tested five times – desktop, laptop, Android,
iPhone and iPad just to make sure it works. Exhausting?
Yes, but necessary.


— interpreter praised as the fastest signer

A newspaper headline praised an interpreter
for being the fastest signer. Not sure why
is this a praise – if an interpreter signs at
a blazing speed then deaf people
may be not able to understand it!
