Many Deaf people I know are like me and grew up in a multilingual family which was told to speak only one language - English - in the home, in order to make me speak English. In my case, I began to learn Spanish and Arabic as a small child, then my family changed - and as a result, I learned no ASL or other foreign languages for a while. [...] weiter »

Reclaim Deaf Power: Interpreters

I saw a post on facebook through Facundo Element; they suggest a fantastic idea: a website to evaluate ASL interpreters and interpreting agencies. I think this is a fantastic idea because, unfortunately, when it comes to interpreters, we aren't the consumers. The consumers are the colleges or employer who pays for the interpreter.

False Equivalence: Translating ASL videos

I've seen people calling for ASL videos to be captioned or subtitled. While I agree with this, I don't think it's appopriate to compare it with captioning English. When you caption English, you're transcribing. [...] weiter »

I've been talking to Deaf people, and checking out my Twitter feed, and it seems clear: Obama's won the debate for the Deaf community, especially in the area of foreign policy. (Maybe it's because he can sign a bit.) Most Deaf Americans might fail to see how our foreign policy decisions affect the Deaf community and world at large, but I think it's vital to seeing how the Deaf community and culture will grow in the new century–and I think the NAD would agree.
