Thanks for the info!
Why would people be unwilling to accept an hoh interpreter, if, with hearing aids, the interpreter is capable of hearing at a normal level? There is a huge deaf community here and I've met many hoh interpreters who don't seem to be lacking in work. Is it a personal opinion, or a general consensus amongst the deaf community? Several of my deaf friends have told me that being hoh gives me more credibility in the interpreting field. Did I misunderstand something?
