DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – March 22, 2021

— interpreter requests not filled

An agency, that serves the deaf in a small city
in a western state, receives several hundred
requests for interpreters. Approximately 15 percent
of these requests are not filled – for one reason –
lack of interpreters around. This is a troubling
issue – because while we have video and VRI services,
the deaf prefer face to face interpreters.

A hearing businessman made this comment in a
workshop panel:

A google search showed this explanation:

To work with means you are working usually on equal footing

Deaf and hearing as equals?

Yes, always, and all the time!



— working in a control room

All NASA flights into space are watched and monitored
by a group of engineers in a control room. One of
these engineers is Johanna Lucht. She is deaf.
NASA has had several other deaf engineers but
never in the control room.
