– What the stories are saying about the deaf?

We all remember the terrible blast near the New England Homes for the Deaf some years back. It affected the
normal operations at the home for quite a while.
There is a new bill in the Massachusetts legislature
that would regulate operations of the boiler plants
everywhere in the state. And as a symbolic gesture,
the bill’s hearing will take place at the very
same site of the blast – New England Homes for the Deaf!

PlasticsSA is working with the Whisper Boat Building Academy
in South Africa to train thirty deaf individuals on
boat-building. It is with the hope that these trained
deaf individuals would eventually find employment in the
boat building field. Said a spokesperson:

There is a tremendous shortage of skilled labour in the boat building industry; the deaf students are a welcome relief in this shortage

– Very Hot News

Two well very public figures – Lady Gaga and Eva Longoria
have made known their desire to learn sign language.
This is interesting. Are they copycatting each
other. And why do they want to learn signs? Do they really want to communicate with us, the deaf, or is it just more media publicity for themselves?

A big time surprise at California School for the Deaf at
Fremont! At yesterday’s graduation ceremony, the famed
Little Theater on the campus was renamed “The Dr. Henry ‘Hank’ Klopping Theater”, much to the shock and surprise of the
retiring superintendent. The picture is at:

http://deafdigest.com/klopping/

And speaking of Klopping’s replacement, this will be
announced this coming Tuesday

– Sunday June 5th

No deaf organization in Swaziland wishes to host the
Miss Deaf Swaziland pageant! There is worry among
deaf leaders that this pageant would be cancelled
because of lack of interest.

– Monday June 6th

A news program in South Carolina focused on the
high costs of hearing aids. And that people ask
South Carolina Association for the Deaf for
assistance and advice on these hearing aids
(costs and insurance, etc)

– Tuesday June 7th

The theme for the Rally at the Indiana State
Capitol building is:

Pro-ASL Deaf on Board Now

It reminds all of us of the famous theme:

Deaf President Now

This is in reference to the governor’s appointment of
hearing individuals to the board of directors of
Indiana School for the Deaf. How many showed up?
One gave an estimate of 100; another with a 300 estimate!

– Wednesday June 8th

A new organization has been announced in Massachusetts;
it is the Massachusetts Employment Now Coalition,
which pushes for employment among the deaf and the
disabled. Web site is at:

Deaf Miscellaneous stuff:

A deaf columnist for a newspaper in Wisconsin wrote
that the state Council for the Deaf/Hard of Hearing
has not met since December 2010 because of quorum
failures. The columnist says that each meeting, lasting
a full day, would cost approximately $4,000
for everything (interpreters, CART providers, food,
parking, mileage, etc)

LOTTERY IN SPAIN
In Spain, there are many disabled people on the
streets that sell lottery tickets. Also there are
many shops that sell these lottery tickets.
There are posters at these lottery shops that
explain that percentage of lottery sales go to
help the disabled.
Do deaf people sell lottery tickets? Do
lottery sales help the deaf?
Good question – because there was no
information on if the deaf are involved or not?

HEARING PALIN AND DEAF PALIN
We have been laughing at Sarah Palin’s Paul Revere
story. She thought that Paul Revere’s famous horse
ride in 1775 was to warn the British that the
Americans were coming to war. In truth, Revere
rode the horse to warn the Americans that the
British were coming.
Do we have a Deaf Palin? Yes! Years ago at
the old NAD headquarters at the Halex House,
a NAD board member looked at the painting of the
famous Fred C Schreiber on the walls. He asked
the other NAD board members:

Who is that person?

The board members were shocked. Schreiber
was a famous CEO during the sixties and
seventies that helped the NAD grow into a
strong organization at that time.
Who is that board member? Sorry, DeafDigest
won’t say!

GUIDELINES FOR OUR CDI’S
What is a CDI? It is Certified Deaf Interpreter. They work
with the hearing interpreter to make sure the deaf client
understands what is being said.
The state of California has guidelines for CDIs that
work in the courtroom. It is at:

THE OTHER SIDE OF EVELYN GLENNIE
Many of us know that Evelyn Glennie, a deaf British
woman, who is the world’s best percussionist.
Percussion is music with different instruments. Look at:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Percussion_instrument

Anyway, there is much more to her than being a
percussionist. She is a business tycoon – managing her
world tours, speaker at events and banquets, music
consultant and jeweler.
She recently purchased a business building which is
becoming a base of her operations.

THE DEAF ARCHITECTURE
From time to time DeafDigest mentions Deaf House, a perfect
100 percent visual residential for the deaf.
Now we have Deaf Architecture. No, DeafDigest is not making
that up.
This phrase was mentioned in a TV program featured by the
Australian Broadcasting Corporation. This network was featuring
a series on Gallaudet University. It said:

At the world’s only deaf university, Gallaudet University in Washington
DC, a radical rethink of what it means to occupy and design space is
underway: it’s called deaf architecture. From deaf space to sign language
poetry, immerse yourself in a deaf sensory aesthetic, with surprising
discoveries for us all.

A PUZZLING HEALTH-RELATED PRESS RELEASE
The University of Arizona issued a press release, saying
a grant was won to fund a Cardiovascular Disease Study
among the culturally deaf adults.
DeafDigest is not questioning the grant that was won.
It is questioning the wording – culturally deaf adults.
Not every deaf person is culturally deaf and does it mean
that non-culturally deaf is not eligible for this disease
study?
And even worse, is it implying that culturally deaf suffer
worse health issues than non-culturally deaf?

A DEAF EDITOR OF A WEB PUBLICATIN
LezGetReal.com is a publication on the web that caters
to gay females.
This publication’s executive editor is deaf and she
needs interpreters to communicate with the hearing
clientele.
DeafDigest editor was not able to get the name of the
deaf editor, nor was able to determine if this publication
is American or foreign.

WHAT DO INTERPRETERS HATE?

Author Sarah Winchester, not deaf, who wrote the book
“The Professor and the Madman” said there are 645
definitions of the short word – run.

No way we could list each definitions, interpreters
included!

if you have these “hate” or “horror” stories, please
mailto:barry@deafdigest.com

COMMENTS FROM A CART OPERATOR – continuing series

“I sometimes see mistakes in the realtime captioning on TV.  How do
I get captioning without mistakes?”

Some captioning must be done “live,” such as for news, sports, and
other events.  Unfortunately, because we are all human, there will be
some mistakes in realtime captioning.  However, we must all become
educated about the difference between an acceptable number of errors
and poor captioning. 

Many companies say that their captioners achieve a 98% accuracy
rate.  When you think about that, that means that there are two
mistakes in every 100 words.   If you look at the words that have
been written so far in this article, 98% would mean that two of the
words would be wrong.

All of the truly great captioners still make mistakes, but their
accuracy rate is usually above 99%.  Some captioners are even able to
attain a rate of 99.5% or better.

Some of the new captioning programs claim to be 80 or 90% accurate. 
That means that for every 100 words, 10 or 20 of them will be wrong. 
When you read something with that many errors, it may be very
difficult to follow what is being said.

We cannot settle for 80 or 90% accuracy.  People who use captioning
must let the people doing the captioning know that that is not
acceptable.  However, we must learn to accept the fact that there
will sometimes be an error in the realtime captioning just because
none of us are perfect.

Hot DeafNews boring, but important!

Does a CI help an user follow music? An user said that the
musical sounds come out distorted and somewhat lost,
missing out on nuances, instruments, pitches and melodies.
That user is suggesting that CI manufacturers better come
up with upgrades to better appreciate music!

The Deaf and the Law:

A hearing impaired photographer was arrested in
Baltimore for taking pictures of city highways
and buildings. He has retained the services
of an attorney in an effort to prove he was
taking pictures for pleasure and not for
something else.

……

News of the Week – Looking Back 10 Years Ago:

Hot from the “On the Green,” the Gallaudet campus newsletter –
Phil Bravin, the first deaf chairperson on the board of trustees,
has retired after 20 years of service.

……

News of the Week – Looking Back 5 Years Ago:

Last week’s DeafDigest mentioned Evelyn
Glennie refusing to have her “Touch the
Sound” film captioned despite her deafness.
A clarification is in order. It was not
her that refused to have captions; it was the
director that refused – when the film first
came out.
Fortunately David Pierce, who wanted to show
the film at the Deaf Movies Festival on August
18-19, 2006 in Sequin, Texas, talked the
director into captioning it.
And besides the DVD has captions on it.
Sorry for the confusion.

……

Deaf Apocalypse of the Week:

While the TV movie “Switched at Birth” was shown
nationally and eagerly awaited by the Deaf Audience,
it was not shown on the ABC network, just the
ABC Family channel, a completely different channel.
And Dish Network did not carry it, thanks to
a contractual dispute. Those that use antenna to
get TV programs would not show this program.

….

A Lipreading Problem: What did that person say?

you thought a fellow employee said:

Take off for me

Take off for me? What does he mean by that?

You then realize, after a long time, that he said:

Day off for me
