DEAF UNEASY WITH DIFFERENT PEOPLE
    You are deaf and you go to the same barber,
the same Starbucks, the same bank for a long
time.
    These people know you and respect you as a
customer, no matter that you are deaf.
    But if you go to a different barber, a
different Starbucks and a different bank,
then you feel little nervous.
    These people do not know you and may not
know what to do with you because of your
deafness. This is why you are nervous.

COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR – continuing series
One of our topics has been strategies and tips to help people read through
realtime captioning errors.
If words don’t make sense in context, one of the most important things you
can do to help to understand the captioning is to see if phonetically you
can make the sentence make sense. Words may not be in the captioner’s
computer dictionary, and so the computer may just be translating it the
way it sounds.
Here are some examples:
“The child had an allergic reaction to a moss key toe bite.”
“He put the trophy on the man tell.”
“They are feeding starving children in Sue Dan.”
The key words in those sentences would be “mosquito,” “mantel,” and
“Sudan.”

son was deaf.
In the world of comedy, one person’s joke is another
person’s insult.
