    Hi, I am a masters student. Over the years i have seen a massive rise of Deaf community in Virtual world/metaverse. However, i saw that the tech is not very accessible or smart to allow the community to have a comfortable intuitive experience. I took this as an opportunity to work on this...

    Looking for fluent signers to practice with.

    Hello! I'm seeking for other Deaf/HoH people to practice ASL. Since I'm a new Deaf and the only one in my family, I figured it's about time to get into the Deaf Community and meet new people who can also help me improve. Any age group is fine, but it'll be nice to meet people around my age...

    Trying to better understand Deaf culture - and what the Hearing can do to be more inclusive - as a designer

    Hello, I'm an industrial designer and just got hired to make a product with the goal of helping people who are deaf or HOH. Based on my research so far I'm beginning to think designing a "product for the deaf" is the wrong way of looking at it and maybe creating a "product for the Hearing, to...

    Enjoying music: Survey for the Deaf Community

    If you could answer any of the questions you want that would be amazing. Thank you!! The stereotype is that deaf people don’t/can’t enjoy music, do you agree or disagree and why? Do you personally enjoy music or do you have any deaf friends/family that does? There was a symphony where...

    I feel like this video may be relatable for some and educational for others so i'll leave it here.

    I usually don't like the "don't say this to *insert*" kinda videos but I feel like this one is pretty spot on and addresses a lot of things and questions people say/ask to those with hearing loss and deafness. I find it relatable and thought some others would. I also thought this might also be...

    I live in fabulous Las Vegas and attended the Deaf Expo this past summer '16. The majority of people I chatted with there were from other states or cities.
