    How hard of hearing is HoH?

    I have bad hearing. I'm constantly having to ask people to speak up. If I'm in a restaurant or place with even mild background noise, I can be sitting across a booth from someone, and not understand the noises that they make. Sometimes, even right next to them. It's very annoying, but whenever I...

    Where to find Deaf/HoH guys in Austin to date?

    First of all, before you read any further, I am Hearing. My hearing is pretty bad, but I don't know how bad one's hearing must be to be HoH. But I'm learning sign, or trying, anyways. I moved to Austin mainly because of the large Deaf community. I want to become an interpreter one day. So, it's...

    ASL Poetry.

    While I have some questions, feel free to post ASL poetry here as well. My main question is, is it normal for ASL poetry to change with the telling? I'm Hearing, and making an ASL poem. There's some things that I change as I work on it, but even when I'm signing a part that's been in the poem...

    Role Play

    I'd like to do a role play with some of you. It is a good way to get to know people, and I love writing stories with other people through roleplay, as you never know where the story will go. I figured, since story-based roleplaying is largely collaborative storytelling, this sub-forum would be...

    Video ASL Thread

    Here, we make videos in ASL to talk to each other! Pictures are also applicable, for those who are unable to make videos. For some, this is an easier way to start signing to people than Skype or face-to-face. Keep text to a minimum. ki8lSUk1uIo I know I did some signs wrong, but I hope that you...

    Just Another 'Terp Student

    Hello! I'm between jobs AND schools, but when I'm not, I'm an ASL interpreter student. Just because I'm not in school, however, doesn't mean that I want to stop learning. After all, if you don't use it, you lose it, and I want to ace ASL 2 (yes, I only managed to get a single semester in)...
