    YouTube Discrimination

    YouTube should be forced to permanently have subtitles enabled, though not activated, so that the CC button is ALWAYS available for the viewer, and the uploader would have NO OPTION to disable it nor select languages. The subtitling facility should be programmed so that ALL languages are...

    DNA/Ancestry test

    Hello everyone! I got my DNA test done twice, once with a different company. The second one confirmed the first one for the most part, and it gave me additional information about my heritage (much more expensive test than the first one, and this has the ability to be used in official Indian...

    Hello from India

    Hello and Namaste. I've been living in India for two years and decided to see what's going on. I've been thinking about something. I see where things are CCP-virus-wise and economy-wise. There's a lot of things going on in America, apparently. Has there ever been a discussion about Deaf...

    Silent strike as a protest

    Hello everyone, I'm seriously considering the possibility of starting a "silence strike," in protest of there not being currently-made analog hearing aids available in the US (I was just told today by another audiologist that supposedly, they are still available, but I wasn't able to confirm...

    Cataract Surgery

    Hello all! I had cataract surgery in my left eye last Thursday the 5th. I'm at home recovering until I can go back to work this weekend (Sherwood Forest Faire). They put in an AcrySof SN60WF aspherical IOC implant to correct higher order aberrations (astigmatism and monocular polyopia), and...

    Romasign

    I post this link only because I'm a member of a Conlang FB group (meaning Constructed, or artificial Language). A fellow member created Roma Sign. Roma Sign is supposedly a way to natively convey ASL to a signer using the Latin alphabet. It states: "The RomaSign system was designed to solve...

    "Do not file a complaint here. Contact your audiologist..."

    This is what I saw on mywidex.com. That really upset me, so when I was at the end of the survey, I saw this, and I decided to give them all the details, and I was near the end when the D web site LOGGED ME OUT!! Oh GD, I was so pissed! VERY ANGRY! I went back in to complain about the fact...

    How do deaf make phone calls in the US?

    Hello? How do you make phone calls to hearing people at businesses and doctor's offices in the United States, since the likes of That's Hamilton and even web-based IP-relay services are gone? I only have a cell phone and computer running off that as a tethered device out in the country with...

    Widex Dream 330

    Well, it seems I have become eligible for hearing aids again, as I am a barback for Sherwood Forest Festival and a farmer at Knopp Branch Farm. I've been cleared to get a pair of these through DARS. Does anyone have experience with these hearing aids, or this type of aid? This has a...

    A challenge to archaeologists and liguistics

    This is a straight-up challenge to the archaeology and linguistics community. You are an archaeologist under Indiana Jones, and you found this script on a wall in a building buried under sand in the middle of the Sahara Desert. What is it, and what does it say? The author has been dead for...

    On a farm!

    This has been an interesting year! The ranch I was on was an experience. I BUSTED MY BUTT to do the work on a volunteer basis with NO BENEFITS. I had a LOT of fun there, especially in the heat! The worse part of the day is usually in the morning from 8 to about noon because of the...

    Captain Phillips...

    I just saw this movie today with friends. It was the first time I stepped into a movie theatre in 13 years... I did not know they had all this food (though at a ridiculous price), and they had these CC devices that fit in your cup holder. It worked well, except I had to hold it up during the...

    Vision Problems: monocular polyopia

    I have a condition in which I see multiple PARTIAL images that looks something like the following photograph: It's particularly bad in one eye, and getting worse in my other eye. I seem to have defective stereoscoptic vision, in that I battle my tendency to shunt the worse eye over to...

    I can appreciate this

    http://i.imgur.com/R2oZlya.jpg It's happening to me more and more, as I left retail, and it appears my speech reception is worsening (most likely because my hearing aids are degrading near their end-of-service life). Someone recently told me her name was Adelaide, and I COULD NOT UNDERSTAND AT...
