To take a STEP in my direction:

But that is not realist expecting hearies to know how to sign. That would like expecting people to speak English when going to another country .

I think Becklak is talking about those who have family members who are deaf. Also, many hearing people can learn asl and communicate with each other using asl. They expect us to learn how to used speech and lipread ..well they should learn ASL.

Hearing people can use a voice to text app to communicate but they have to believe that deaf/hoh people are worth the effort. Sadly, some hearing people that don't value deaf/hoh people enough to make an effort are family members.

It's a good one Beklak. It would be neat if it could be used and put as a sign a business who wants deaf customers, and I would support businesses that used it.

I do not know ASL , but I would had loved it my family had taken in consideration that because I am HOH they made sure I was included in everything they did! Like come and get when they where going out to eat instead of calling me from upstairs!

I started making my needs know early. My family complained about the movie captions when we watched a movie. I quit watching movies with them and they got the hint. My family is generally pretty considerate anyway.
