DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – May 31, 2021

— interpreter and deaf client do not understand each other!

Is it possible that an interpreter and client do not
understand each other? It may not happen in USA
because we have Certified Deaf Interpreters that
bridge the gap. But it is happening, in a small
way, with the British video relay service!

 

— comic book with empty texts

Could a comic book be without texts in some pages?
Uncanny X-Men is a comic book that has been around
for 58 years. One of the characters is Claire Connell,
who is deaf. And to emphasize her deafness, her
comments are blank! Good idea or bad idea?

 

— happy or unhappy with a new law in Washington state

Washington State Senate passed a bill to require
captions to be turned on with TV sets at all
public places. Happy? Yes, but this bill allows
airports, tribal lands and houses of worship
to have captions turned off! Not sure why
captions can be turned on in some places and
turned off in other places.

Top stories about the deaf:

TikTok has been credited for helping preserve
Black Sign Language.

………..

A trio of deaf, stupid and blind individuals
working together to solve a crime? This is
what a new movie – Mugguru Monagallu is
coming up with in India. Sorry, the actor
playing the deaf role is fake-deaf.

……….

Is there an ADA overload over vocabulary?
An activist said he is tired of hearing
such phrases as ADA vehicle, ADA
entrance, ADA experience, ADA captions,
ADA interpreters, etc!

…………….

What happens if a deaf person has no access
to bad weather warnings? He may not know
where the safe escape routes are, and which
routes are closed. This comment was made
by a deaf person in a newspaper story.

………………

AI-empowered apps is supposed to be great, but
it is not perfect. An example is AI making
captions go bad! This was part of a newspaper
story.

This week’s ASL video in youtube

A WRONG INTERPRETER FOR WRONG DEAF PERSON
It happens from time to time. A deaf person goes
to a store to order something. The clerk, knowing
the person is deaf, asked a Coda, fluent in ASL
to serve at the interpreter.
It was the wrong interpreter for the wrong deaf person.
The deaf person was oral and knows no sign language, and
bringing in a Coda was a waste of time.
It is frustrating!

HOW TO KILL A JOB INTERVIEW?
This is a true story. A national deaf organization
was advertising for a job as a receptionist/typist.
One hearing woman, ok with her ASL signs, demanded
a very high salary. It was almost equal to the
deaf organization CEO’s salary.
Of course, she did not get the job.

Top stories about the deaf:

Huang Guanjun, who is deaf and an outstanding
long distance runner, was in a group of 21 runners
that perished in a race in China. Weather was great
at the start of the race before suddenly becoming
nasty, thus trapping these runners in freezing
conditions.

……….

‘The Incredible Hulk’ Lou Ferrigno said that
while struggled all his life with his deafness
he tried a couple of hearing aids and these
failed – but found success with his CI.

……..

An activist said ADA basically accommodates
those that use wheelchairs, as opposed to
accommodating all disabled people!

……….

A newly-discovered gene that carries hereditary deafness
has been identified as LOXHD1. Geneticist Marjo Hytonen
made that discovery.

…………

Hormel Foods and Jennie-O (Hormel Foods Corporation)
was awarded the best in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
at the PRWeek’s Brand Film Awards event. The primary
reason was Hormel hiring a deaf refugee who is currently
building up a career at this company.

MUSIC IN SPORTS
Many deaf people love sports – football, basketball,
etc – no matter.
Many hearing people also love sports for another
reason – music! There is a lot of music during sports
events. Hearing people enjoy two things – watching
sports and listening to the music.
Deaf people often do not realize it!

Lip reading tale

A hearing person was telling his deaf friend
something.

The deaf friend thought the hearing person said:
This is Felix and I am getting a package

The hearing friend actually said:
This is Fedex and I am getting a package

HEARING HOPE THAT DEAF STAY AWAY
There are many hearing people that wave hi, and smile
when a deaf person walks by him. But at the same time
the mind of the hearing person is:

I hope he does not come to talk to me

And often after many years of saying hi and waving,
the deaf person finally comes to the hearing person to
discuss something.
Suddenly the hearing person’s mind locks up and he
freezes!

Very sad.

COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR – continuing series

As we take a look at some of the final consonants that captioners write
with their right hand, we see that the P on the top bank and the B on the
bottom bank are written by the middle finger of the right hand.

The captioner depresses both keys simultaneously to get an N sound. A slip
of the finger can cause a word that was not intended.

Some examples of this would be:
He downloaded a song from I tubes.
She is going to rub the race.
He drove the Jean off the road.

These should be read as:
He downloaded a song from iTunes.
She is going to run the race.
He drove the Jeep off the road.

News of the Week – Looking Back 10 Years Ago:

DeafDigest mentioned Alabama government robbing Peter to
pay Paul, meaning shifting funds from the Telecommunications
Relay Service Fund to pay for other things. The deaf barked
about it but unfortunately, the legislators would not listen
to the deaf.

-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

News of the Week – Looking Back 5 Years Ago:

The British legal system not being fair to the deaf?
Says who? The SignHealth, a social service agency working
with the deaf and representatives from three different
British police jurisdictions are saying so. Their findings
have been presented to Dominic Grieve, an attorney who also
serves as a Member of the Parliament.
