    ASL going away like I predicted

    Four years ago I asked members why continue to embrace a dying language like ASL? Most laughed and scoffed at me. My question is how do you feel about ASL going away now and technology offering much better ways to communicate than having to learn a complex language skill? More importantly my...

    ASL, why keep embracing it

    No I am not being uncivil or a troll and the whole reason I brought this up is because of the difficulty level learning ASL not just from a deaf or HOH persons point of view but for those who wish to communicate to us. It takes a lot of time and effort to learn ASL-it really does. I know...

    ASL, why keep embracing it

    In my mind its quite simple-if you cant let go of the past how can you make it in the future? As long as ASL is worshipped and hailed as the only way or the way to communicate in our community, how can you devlop new things? Seems like the only ones who want to make our lives better are the...

    ASL, why keep embracing it

    Far better than not communicating at all? I will agree there but, they can do even better when you open communication up to the rest of the world rather than the 2 million or so of the 360 million Americans for example. I am certainly not putting ASL down because it is a tool used to...

    ASL, why keep embracing it

    It is in development, my main point is, as a community-if we embrace and contribute to new technology medical break throughs we may be able to expedite its development and at least see it happen in our lifetime. It can only be ASL if everyone is tought a common language in schools like ASL...

    ASL, why keep embracing it

    I know I will ruffle some feathers with this post and please understand it is not my intention. Why does the deaf community hold ASL so dear and not embrace the future? To me ASL is useless in my surrounding world so I embrace technology as a whole. I have even been a contributor of...

    Help-Sling TV on Smart TV or Roku2

    I pretty much gave up on this, it is Global TV thats the problem. They claim CC works but I tried multiple TV brands and CC works on all of them from Time Warner, Apple Tv and Other Roku Apps. My conclusion is Slings Global TV for Deaf and HOH is garbage. At least my Brazilian Fiance can...

    Yeah, I am not learning ASL because no one in my circle of the world knows it nor will they learn it for my benefit. I would have to start from scratch with new people but at my age?

    Deaf Unemployment Rate @ 72.5%...!!!

    I did not know the difference so I did some research and found this which explins things very well between HOH and Deaf. I am HOH I guess because I can hear with HA but deaf without. http://www.washington.edu/doit/deaf-or-hard-hearing

    Help-Sling TV on Smart TV or Roku2

    Yes it is enabled on both the sling app and Roku 2 box and on Smart TV. Still no luck. I am 90% deaf and I am trying to learn Brazilian Portuguese by watching Globo TV. I cant make out all the words so I need CC to learn the language because I need to see the words.
