DeafDigest Mid-Week edition - March 18, 2021 -- scammed out of $36,000 USA dollars Scammers or even Deaf Scammers are everywhere. We hate these scammers but it won't go away.

If the employer wants to give employees training in ASL, the Big Business can afford to hire an interpreter with a Power Point. Small Business may find hiring an ASL interpreter too expensive for them! This was what one owner of a Small Business said.   -- interpreter's nightmare What is an interpreter's nightmare? Having to invent a new sign for a word that was never interpreted in the past? No - all interpreters deal with it. Then what is the nightmare? Because of the pandemic, the interpeter faces the camera with no audience in front of her eyes! The interpreter had no way of knowing if the deaf audience understood and appreciated her signs. Fortunately for that interpreter, she got responses from Facebook and emails, all of them positive!   Deaf jobs - latest update 03/14/21 Blue and Gold editions & sub options at:
