DeafDigest - 08 March 2021

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition - March 8, 2021 -- public made unaware of these deaf-owned businesses We have many deaf-owned, deaf-run businesses. And while they sell products and services to the hearing people, they sort of hide their deafness from the public. It is for a good reason - there are always still hearing people that do not believe deaf can operate businesses. Hearing employees deal with the hearing public, not the deaf owners themselves. It is better to use hearing employees than to have hearing customers walk out and lose business that way!   -- The Hearing Space We have Deaf  House (Space), originated by Bernard Brown, who is deaf and is a retired home improvement business owner. We also have Hearing Space. An activist described it as: We operate in a society, and workplaces, designed for people who hear   -- helping Zoom help the deaf Deaf people are not 100 percent happy with ASL in Zoom. Deaf people are also not 100 percent happy with captions in Zoom. What next? There is a new App called Scribe. It is supposed to take notes of Zoom discussions, and is supposed to benefit the deaf? Will it? DeafDigest hopes so.   Deaf jobs - latest update 03/07/21 Blue and Gold editions & sub options at:
