Charles Tiayon's curator insight, October 29, 2013 11:53 AM

One of the unique features of this conference was the Community Forum. While this forum may have been a difficult process for many of the participants, the critical take-away message that I found quite heartening was, “The Deaf Community wants you and misses you and wonders where things broke down.” The “you” in this observation is “sign language interpreters,” all interpreters.

Worldwide, an estimated 360 million people are deaf or hard of hearing. Because the majority of hearing individuals do not understand sign language, people who are deaf often have difficulties interacting with the hearing. While other methods exist, researchers hope to make translation even easier with a cost-effective, efficient prototype that translates sign language into spoken language—and spoken language into sign language—in real time.

Amzone is devolving the human interaction part through their devise Kinect. This act well lead to the rise and the devolvement of the future and the understanding of the design industry for deaf people. As you go through the article you will find out that such idea will work because the need of such a devise is required at the moment across the world. The examples that was given in the article was very interesting from the medical field all the way to the class rooms of the schools.

Deaf People Can't Get Jobs: Employers must provide ASL interpreters for the interview!

Deaf People Can't Get Jobs: Employers must provide ASL interpreters for the interview! | Deaf Culture | Scoop.it

Yes, you are looking at the title above, "Employers must provide ASL interpreters for the interview!", which is what I've been hearing from the moment this blog started. Surely, ADA law requires employers to accommodate Deaf applicants when they're hired, but let's not forget that they can't be forced to hire them.


There was an article about a case of Deaf applicant suing Toy "R" Us for not providing an ASL interpreter for the group interview. So, why would Toy "R" Us want to pay out of their own pocket for an ASL interpreter if they weren't sure they were going to hire a Deaf applicant? Think about it. They couldn't afford to throw away their money on an expensive ASL interpreter just for the interview. The money issue is completely irrelevant to Deaf applicants because they don't pay. Now, you wonder why the VR services would have to provide ASL interpreters even though the so-called law says it's the actually employers' responsibilities.
