Top stories about the deaf:

David Bryant, who is deaf, has become Guilford Technical
Community College’s first deaf graduate in diesel mechanics.
He required two interpreters at all times in order to
go through his classes and his on-field training.

……..

The Burnley Football Club is one of the most famous
soccer teams in British’s Premier League. This team
had a deaf player – Billy Nesbitt who starred in
the 1910’s and 1920’s. He was considered to be
the team’s best player in these seasons. As years
passed by, he pretty much was ignored by the fans.
But in the early sixties, two life long fans
bumped into him while riding the railroad. They
then realized who he was but because of communication
issues they couldn’t communicate with him. Years
later while recalling him, these fans regretted not
trying to communicate with him – via notes or via
gestures.  This was part of a British newspaper story.

……..

In an article the Scientific American issued a warning
that CI surgeons need to balance ethnic challenges
of connecting brains to computers. In other words,
they need to use neurotechnology in a responsible way.

………..

Indonesia has fired two Air Force officers
for roughing up a deaf civilian.

……….

Before deaf woman Shirley Pinto was elected to the
Knesset, she served as member of the Israel Defense Forces
serving with the Air Force Technical Corps.

A WASTED FUND
One city got a grant from the federal government.
It was for interpreting funds.
Yet, when the police arrested a deaf person, the police
refused to touch the interpreting fund to hire and pay
an interpreter.
Why set up an interpreting fund for nothing?

Lip reading tale

A hearing fan and a deaf fan were talking about
these all-time famous homeruns in past years.

The deaf fan thought the hearing fan said:
Never forgot the homerun by Bobby Thompson in the 1951 playoff game
against Brooklyn Dodgers

The hearing fan actually said:
Bobby Thomson (rest of story remains as is)

A NIGHTMARE AT A HIGH SCHOOL MAINSTREAMED CLASS
This is a true story. This is not a joke. A deaf
student in a public high school mainstreamed program
has no speech skills.
Yet, a high school teacher forced him to stand up
in class and to speak out (with voice and without
interpreter) in a classroom discussion!
The stupid teacher immediately realized his mistake,
and told the deaf student he was excused from speaking!

brighter!”

The largest annual gathering of court reporters, realtime captioners,
scopists, legal videographers, trial presenters, and other legal services
professionals, the convention and expo offers a wide range of continuing
education seminars and social events. This year’s keynote speaker is Debbi
Fields, founder of Mrs. Fields Cookies.

News of the Week – Looking Back 10 Years Ago:

The Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center for Wireless
Technologies published results of weather and emergency
warnings survey that the deaf and the disabled were asked
to take part in. The conclusion was a hint that the deaf and
the disabled need to have their communications equipment
upgraded on a regular basis because of rapidly changing
technological times.

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

News of the Week – Looking Back 5 Years Ago:

ADA is now one year older. While ADA has improved the lives
of the deaf, there is much that needs to be accomplished
in the coming years. Examples are – high unemployment rates,
lack of captions on the Internet, deaf being cut out of the
loop each time there is a new invention, federal government’s
turtle-like speed in enforcing ADA regs, etc, etc.

some doctors that work with people that suffer from
tinnitus.
There is one doctor, who said she is the only one

name is Dr. Marsha Johnson and her practice is in
Oregon.
Yet, how many deaf patients have seen her in her
15 years of practice?
Zero! Why?

AMERICANS SIGNING FOREIGN AMERICAN LANGUAGES
This is a true story. Two deaf Americans were arguing
in sign language. The third person, himself deaf, watched
the argument but did not understand the argument.
Why? The two deaf Americans were arguing in ASL;
the third deaf person, not arguing, but watching,
only knew SEE (Signing Essential English) and could
not just understand one word!
Do  deaf in USA, have too many different
American languages in signs?
Yes.

COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR – continuing series

“What does a CART provider or captioner do when the proceedings
become contentious and everyone is talking at the same time?”
Although court reporters and CART providers use the same skills and
the same equipment and software to perform many of their job
functions, this is where there is a big difference in how they
perform their job duties.

A court reporter is supposed to make a verbatim record of the
proceedings that he or she reports. If people start speaking over one
another and it is impossible to decipher who is speaking and what
they are saying, a court reporter should stop the proceedings and ask
people to repeat what they have said.? It is the reporter’s duty to
attempt to maintain a clear record.

The CART provider or captioner, on the other hand, is present at an
event to provide communication access. Because a verbatim record is
not required, the CART provider would usually not stop the
proceedings to gain control of a contentious situation.

The captioner can use parentheticals such as (simultaneous
crosstalk), (indiscernible), or (inaudible) to indicate that one
cannot understand what is being said. The consumers of the CART
services would then be able to ask people at the event to repeat or
slow down.

Just because you see someone at an event using a steno machine, it
does not mean that he or she is making a verbatim record. The goal
may be to enable the consumers of the CART services to understand
what everyone else in the room understands.

News of the Week – Looking Back 10 Years Ago:

DeafDigest also dedicates this edition to Joy Carney, who
departed us. As a young woman she was known as Joy York and
was a faithful NAD employee, and on the side, a strong advocate
for the needs of the deaf. Over the years she has continued
her advocacy with respect to telecommunications and interpreting
needs. In recent years she lived on the Delaware’s Eastern Shore
and operated her own Deaf Tours travel business while serving
as an interpreter and also helping out with the Deaf Independent
Living Association, the Eastern Shore area’s deaf social service
agency. She had a reputation for being the best interpreter on
the Eastern Shore. As a compliment to her interpreting skills,
a deaf husband and a deaf wife, going through a divorce, agreed
on just her as the interpreter, representing both sides. It was
contrary to conventional wisdom. But with Joy, it didn’t matter
as everyone trusted her impartiality!

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

News of the Week – Looking Back 5 Years Ago:

The National Foundation for the Deaf has succeeded in getting
the New Zealand Human Rights Commission’s challenge of the way
The Accident Compensation Corporation defines deafness. The
challenge was because the deaf group felt the definition was
discriminatory. Next step is for both groups to go into mediation
to agree on a more reasonable definition of deafness.

A RESTAURANT FINALLY TURNS ON CAPTIONS
A restaurant in Washington, DC finally turned on
TV captions after struggling for almost two months!
The restaurant threw out old TV and bought a new
TV. The owner threw out the manual without thinking
about it.
The new TV had no captions, and there was no manual.
The restaurant manager struggled with captions on and
off for two months until he finally turned it on.
He said the captions option on the screen was locked
when he received the new TV, and he could not find a way
to unlock the option.
One day, by luck, he pressed on a screen option and
suddenly the captions went on.
He said he does not remember how he got captions to
work – it was blind luck!

A BOX MAKES PEACE BETWEEN DEAF AND HEARING EMPLOYEES
A deaf man and a hearing man did not get along in
a workplace office. They were always arguing over many
things.
The hearing man was rude. He would confront the deaf
man, pointing to the mistake deaf man made with paperwork.
And the hearing man would not listen when the deaf man
tried to explain that it was not an error.
Then there was peace. How? The boss set up two boxes
on top of a table in the office. One box was for the
deaf employee. The other box was for the hearing employee.
If they wish to communicate or to pass papers with
each other, they put these in the box.
No more face to face. Just box to box. Peace!

COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR – continuing series

As we continue to look at the final consonants written by the right hand
of stenocaptioners, we see the keys that are depressed by the pinkie
finger are the final T, S, D, and Z.

The T is above the S, and the D is above the Z.

As we look at blended sounds at the end of words, we see that the
captioner could sometimes mistake the “-rt” and “-rd” endings with a slip
of the pinkie finger.

Some examples of this would be:
The attorney was supposed to appear in cord.
He was driving a new fort.
She thought he was being rude and curd.

These should be read as:
The attorney was supposed to appear in court.
He was driving a new Ford.
She thought he was being rude and curt.

While it is a dangerous activity, risk-taking individuals
go for this challenge. One of these daring individuals is
Sergio Colas. He is deaf and he has been dodging the
bulls for over ten years. Because he cannot hear, he has
to look over his shoulders while running away from the
bulls. Others, not deaf, listen for the hoof beats.
He has faced dangers in the past but has survived.
When not busy running away from the bulls, he works at the
local Volkswagen dealership.

COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR – continuing series

We started looking at blended sounds at the end of words. We have seen
that stenocaptioners use the right middle finger to depress the final P
and B keys.

When those two keys are depressed simultaneously, we get the N sound. You
can blend these sounds with a final T, which is written with the pinkie
finger of the right hand.

A slip of the right middle finger could cause a captioner to make a
mistake with the “-pt” or “-bt” or “-nt” sounds at the ends of words.

Some examples of this would be:
He leapt his brother the money without expecting repayment.
She wept shopping for school supplies.
The result of the fender bender was just a small debit in their car.

These should be read as:
He lent his brother the money without expecting repayment.
She went shopping for school supplies.
The result of the fender bender was just a small dent in their car.

News of the Week – Looking Back 10 Years Ago:

DeafDigest dedicates this edition to Larry Newman,
Riverside, CA, who departed us. A legendary teacher
at California School for the Deaf for so many
years, he was the Teacher of the Year in the
state of California. And he was also a leader
with several national deaf organizations, including
the NAD. And with the NAD, he served as the president,
successfully steering this organization through one of
its most troubled financial moments. He also was an
accomplished writer and author, with so many articles
to his credit.

Why was he so beloved by everyone, everywhere?
Said an acquaintance:

He was very patient and kept things on an even keel
when things got bad

Thank you very much for serving us so admirably
over the years

News of the Week – Looking Back 5 Years Ago:

Why do government programs to help the deaf and the

input. An example is establishing a training class
for the deaf – but without hiring interpreters,
and so on!

I seem to ‘see’ photographs all the time. Maybe because
I am deaf and I pick up more of what I see.

……..

Deaf education in the days just after the Civil War?
The schools for the deaf taught in the oral method
whereas the black schools for the deaf taught
via sign language. This fact was gleaned from
“The Hidden Treasure of Black ASL.”

……..

A deaf student filed a disability bias lawsuit.
His mistake was to bypass the federal education
law administration, instead going directly
to his home educational district. For that
reason, the Sixth Circuit ruled against him!
Complicated and confusing? Yes, and that
was why the voting by the Sixth Circuit
judges was not unanimous.

………..

There is an upcoming program on British TV
that will feature the fight by the deaf and
the disabled for their civil rights. It
said that significant steps forward have
been made. Keep in mind there is no ADA
in Great Britain.

……….

Windows 11 will be offering an easier way to caption
the screen.

This week’s ASL video in youtube

DEAF-FRIENDLY OR DEAF-UNFRIENDLY
You go to a bank to discuss a banking
transaction. The desk woman is very
deaf-friendly – but she writes back and
forth so many notes. It takes all
morning and you are still confused as to
what she is trying to tell you.
You go to another bank, and the different
desk woman is deaf-unfriendly – but she
uses few simple gestures – and you fully
understand everything! And it only takes
few minutes.
Which is best – deaf-friendly or
deaf-unfriendly?

Lip reading tale

A hearing friend was telling a deaf friend
about a former major leaguer who was a
success in the real estate and financial
planning fields.

The deaf friend thought the hearing friend said:

Bob Turkey had a great career in business after
he retired from baseball

The hearing friend actually said:

Bob Turley (rest of the comment remains the
same as is)

SOME BANKS ARE AFRAID OF THE DEAF
This is a true story; a deaf person went to a bank
and gave the teller a note.
The teller got scared and pressed the “bank robbery”
button to alert the police.
The police came to the bank, looking for the bank
robber. The teller pointed to the deaf person.
It was realized that the deaf person was not a
bank robber but wanted to ask the teller a question
about a banking matter.
Many bank robbers pass notes to the tellers
demanding money. Not that deaf person!

COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR – continuing series

When we were looking at the initial consonants that stenocaptioners
depress with their left hands, we saw that sometimes a blended sound was
used at the beginning of words.

As we now are looking at final consonants, there are words where the
consonant sounds are blended at the ends of words.

We have seen that the final F and the R are both depressed with the right
index finger. Therefore, a slip of the index finger could cause us to have
the sound “-rt” instead of “-ft” and vice versa.

Some examples of this would be:
The apple tasted a little too Taft.
The daft hit the center of the bull’s eye.
The kitty was very sort and cuddly.

These should be read as:
The apple tasted a little too tart.
The dart hit the center of the bull’s eye.
The kitty was very soft and cuddly.

News of the Week – Looking Back 10 Years Ago:

Captioned radio making a comeback? The original captioned
radio was broadcast in the Philadelphia Deaf Community
during the seventies, on a federal government grant.
The technology was old – these clunky TTY machines.
And now this – the National Public Radio just gave a
demonstration of its captioned radio product, for the
benefit of the deaf-blind at the American Association
of the Deaf-Blind National Symposium in Ft. Mitchell, KY.
