Her first day on the job was the first day businesses were allowed to reopen with use of masks. She has never known what it was to work as hairstylist without masks! For that reason many of her customers were not aware of her deafness, but were still accepting of her work on their hair!   -- $1,000 for essential artists San Francisco has announced a plan - to pay $1,000 per month for essential artists to continue to work on their art. What is essential? Are deaf artists essential in the eyes of the San Francisco officials? Keep in mind we have many great deaf artists.   -- live captions, yes; automated captions, no; interpreters, no A deaf resident of Minneapolis filed a formal complaint about public meetings not being interpreted. This complaint went into mediation and agreement was reached to provide captions. But which captions - by humans or by machines.
