    App for deaf people? "What do You need?"

    What would this app entail? Do you think it can eventually be utilized within the restaurant business? I am working on a proposal for better hospitality within restaurants for those who are deaf and hard of hearing. Maybe our ideas could work together!

    Does anyone have any resturant stories they want to share? Either positive experience, like your server knowing how to sign. Or even bad ones? I am curious and this would definitely help

    For those who are deaf and date within the hearing community, do you find it difficult to agree on a date spot? If the hearing person is uneducated I'm sure they may recommend the movies or going out to eat. Where do you often like to go for first dates?

    American Deaf hand signs

    This is a great website that many who want to learn sign can utilize. Maybe this website could be used to train employees some signs to help out their deaf customers!

    Hotel friendly?

    While I was researching for my project, about improving hospitality towards the deaf, I discovered all the ways that deaf people were mistreated. It is quite unreasonable how unwilling some places are to help others. I also found this true for restaurants, movie theatres, and many other places...

    Wanting to learn Sign Language

    I picked up sign language very quickly. That is because I involved myself in ASL club and often hung out with my deaf friends. I had to learn quickly because I wanted to communicate with them. Try facetiming a deaf friend you meet, maybe you will meet them here!
