Accessibility

Stained glass bulletCaptioning sucks! Not enough of it! They don't listen! It's hard to read! Deaf people settle for crumbs! The wrong kind! The fox is watching the henhouse! There *are* no standards!

Stained glass bulletHerrod, L. Deafness and the User Experience. An interesting thing has happened on the web in the last 18 months—the web community has become more aware of deafness and how it influences accessible design practices. First, Joe Clark launched The Open & Closed Project (OCP) in November, 2006. Second, in early April, The OCP launched the Captioning Sucks! site.

Stained glass bulletNavigadget. (2008, March 21). GPS Ranger now with sign language. GPS Ranger, a multimedia GPS touring device with a four-inch LCD screen and amplified audio system from BarZ made their virtual tours more accessible to both deaf and hard of hearing people, by first adding a captioning option to the device. And now for the first time, they have created a tour available completely in American Sign Language (ASL), a tour of Austin, Texas.

Stained glass bulletThe Open & Closed Project is a new research project headquartered in Toronto. Our main goal is to improve quality by setting standards for the four fields of accessible media – captioning, audio description, subtitling, and dubbing. We’ll develop those standards through research and evidence-gathering. Where research or evidence is missing on a certain topic, we’ll carry it out ourselves. We’ll test the finished standards for a year in the real world, then publish them. (You’ll be able to download them for free or buy them in several formats.) Then we’ll develop training and certification programs for practitioners. It will finally be possible to become a certified captioner (or audio describer or subtitler or dubbing artist). We’ll also develop and test improved fonts for captioning and subtitling (already underway). We’ll develop a universal file format.

The Sweet Smell of Victory for ASL!signing handsThe Rush-Henrietta School District made a proposal to phase out ASL class as a foreign language credit that the 8th graders have been earning a credit that is equivalent to high school level. The fight was presented by the deaf community members to confront the board in a town meeting where many spoke out to preserve ASL in middle school. It led to convince the board to unanimously vote to keep ASL classes in middle school. See how this model has set up an example of unity to make the outcome desirable by the deaf community.

Hawk Relay cares about giving back to the community -- instead of promoting company image and making money. Hawk Relay sets an excellent example of a positive company and community relationship, and we hope other companies will learn from Hawk Relay and do the same -- give support to those who need it the most!

Cultural behavior can be observed throughout the documentary, rich with Deaf folklife such as signed sing-alongs that were a staple of social gatherings of the time.

In an approach unlike any other film about the Deaf, Universal Signs is primarily told through American Sign Language (ASL) with captions for the hearing. In this way, the audience travels on a first person journey through the Deaf world and culture. From ASL mistakes to common miscommunications, everyday life experiences of the Deaf are explored. Deafness is not treated as a physiological condition. In Universal Signs, the Deaf world is viewed as a rich, thriving culture exemplified by strong characters such as: Chris, a linguistics professor; Natalie, a law student; and Andrew, an artist and IT specialist. In Universal Signs, ASL interpreters and hearing individuals do not play Deaf characters — Deaf actors play all Deaf characters!

stained glass bulletWahlin, B. The unstoppable Arthur Luhn: A visionary filmmaker for the ASL community. According to American Sign Language (ASL) lore, in a galaxy far, far away there exists a planet, Eyeth, inhabited mainly by those who use sign language to communicate. Whereas the majority of those who live on Earth speak and hear - using their ears - on Eyeth people communicate visually - with their hands and eyes. So it's fitting that Boston-based filmmaker Arthur Luhn named his production company Eyeth Films, which he founded in 2000 with the purpose of making films by, for, and about the ASL-speaking public. While according to Luhn many big-screen films like Children of a Lesser God "portray the ASL Culture in a rather dreary light" (and even those films are few and far between), Eyeth Films strives to give visibility to the ASL community and capture the richness of its culture and language.

I am drawn to follow the value of nature’s colors as they change from sunrise to sunset. This requires the employment of homemade paint from dust to create my vision of art.

All of the women I sculpt emanate pride,intelligence and strength as well as the more traditional values of beauty and sensuality. My abundant-bodied sculptures reflect the feminist issues of body image and size oppression. Growing up as a German Jew in a severely abusive environment and later in numerous foster homes, I developed a deep compassion and a commitment to reaching out to others. Early on I made a conscious decision to be an ally rather than a perpetrator, which guides me when sculpting. My art explores issues of oppression and ways to build bridges through our diversities.

Stained glass bulletDeaf art note cards: Works of Harry R. Williams - Set 5, set 6. Harry R. Williams (1948-1991) was a shy pioneer who found in the genre of Deaf Art a means of honoring and exalting American Sign Language-and the lonely but unrepentant Deaf self. Paradoxically, his favorite subject, crafted out of balsa wood and oil paint, was the violin. His lyrical violin paintings are especially prized for their exquisiteness, although many collectors are unaware of the many-layered Deaf meanings that underlie the surface. Williams's works can seem abstract and challenging, but their beauty and striking conceptualization make them worth the effort to understand and embrace. Any examination of Deaf Art, a growing subject of discussion in Deaf Studies programs, is incomplete without a look at the transcendent imagery of Harry R. Williams.

Stained glass bulletDeaf View/Image Art -- De'VIA. In 1971, Betty G. Miller began expressing her Deaf experiences through her paintings and drawings.

Starting at Spectrum, Focus on Deaf Artists' summer festivals in 1977 and 1978, there were formal workshops on the question of Deaf Visual Art, and there have been many lecrdse4tures and workshops since then. Yet, these workshops lasted only an hour or two, and never really came to any formal decision.

Stained glass bulletPellerin Art - The artworks of Andre Pellerin. I have always wanted to do pottery since I was a kid. When I was living on a farm up in Vermont, I used mud or dirt to make things.

I probably made something like an ashtray for my parents. I have not done any ceramics for a long time after that. But I do believe in fate, because things often happen whether I like it or not.

Stained glass bulletRandy Dunham is a neo-surrealist artist, who has been producing surreal art in New York since early 1998. Randy Dunham's surrealism styled art is a form of focus employing REFLECTION, REFRACTION, and TRANSPARENCY, which transform randomly selected inanimate and industrial shapes into a spectacle of wonder and vision. These transformed objects come to life through the mastery of surrealist illusions of transparency and levitation. A dazzling array of color shifts and vibrant accents are incorporated on the surface of these dreamlike, surreal art forms.

Stained glass bulletDavis Haggerty, L. R. (2006, March). Adjusting the margins: Building bridges between Deaf and Hearing cultures through performance arts. There is an invisible style of leadership differing from the mainstream culture that has not been previously addressed in the literature at any depth. The foundation for my fieldwork was an "archeology of the structure of the perceived world" (Merleau-Ponty), using the holding environment of the rehearsal process and the structural process of an acting technique called Del-Sign. Del-Sign is a fusion acting style that I created by combining American Sign Language and the Delsarte method. I also employed current qualitative methods described as "performance ethnography" (Norman Denzin and Ron Pelias). Individuals in both the audience and the cast reported a change in perception about the opposing culture. The study results also indicated a unique style of leadership by Deaf people within a Deaf community that is collaborative in nature yet values the individual. I trust further study into that aspect of Deaf leadership will indeed adjust the margins of society.

Deaf photography

Stained glass bulletAyisha Knight homepage: Photos. For me, the declaration "It takes a village to raise a child" is not only and African proverb, it's the way I've lived my life. Questions of my cultural and linguistic identity always invoke quizzical expressions, astonishment or resignation to the fact that I can't be described in one checked box on college applications. I am the daughter of a white Jewish mother and a Black Cherokee father by birth, but I was raised in a community of single mothers who raised me as their own. At last count, fifteen mothers, three fathers, numerous brothers, sisters all forming an unconventional yet profoundly beautiful family. This ethnically diverse community of poets, painters, sculptors, storytellers taught me that creating and sharing art is as much a political act as a thing of beauty. Sharing myself and my work has been my greatest challenge and most rewarding experience.

The challenge for me is to wait for it to hold it’s own breath to “allow me the privilege” of photographing it’s beauty. As I capture the essence of a subject, I am in awe with the texture and perfection of it whether it’s in the midst of a struggle to bloom, or in full glory, or even in the sadness of decay. My goal is to share this awe; to inspire others to see what I see and hopefully take the time to appreciate the perfection of Mother Nature.

Stained glass bulletJason Wittig. Jason Wittig was born and raised in the tiny northwoods town of Boulder Junction, Wisconsin with a big family. He became Deaf at age fourteen months.

Late in his teenage years, he developed a serious passion and vision for photography. His vision is natural, beautiful, and humorous with depth. His perspective also brings forth an amazing array of emotions, using elements from fine art photography to those of advertising. The variety shows through the immense array of subjects he has chosen to capture.

Photography is something I can't live without, and you shouldn't either.

Stained glass bulletTim Kettering Photography. My approach to photography is one as simple as possible. I do not like using flash photography. I prefer to immerse myself into the element of where I am, and shoot using entirely available light. Shooting with available light presents many challenges. Sometimes lighting conditions are not ideal. So I have to make sure I collect every valuable photon. I shoot with a Canon 5D, one of the best available-light cameras on the market. But even the best cameras still need fast glass to make shooting in low-light possible. For that end, I make heavy use of primes, which give superior optical performance. I primarily use a EF 35mm f/1.4 L. I cannot possibly summarize how fantastic this combination is for my work, other than simply saying it rocks.

Stained glass bulletJudges' guide to standards for interpreted proceedings. Judges who regularly hear interpreted matters should explore the feasibility of making tape recordings of all witness interpreting and, as a second priority, of proceedings interpreting. (Proceedings interpreting in the simultaneous mode is done quietly at counsel table or with interpreting equipment and would require special arrangements for recording.) In most courtrooms for the foreseeable future, this may not be feasible. In the alternative, however, it is strongly recommended that an audio or audio/video record be made in the following circumstances: … all capital cases, … proceedings involving interpretation by a non-certified interpreter, ... In felony proceedings involving entry of a guilty plea that are interpreted by an unqualified interpreter.

& Mintz, H. Orientation workshops for interpreters of all languages: How to strike a balance between the ideal world and reality. Between May 1991 and May 1993, a total of eight two-day workshops were presented at various locations in the state. The intended audience was interpreters who were working in the courts but had not passed the certification exams, either because no exam was offered in their language or because they had taken and failed the exam. The workshops were also attended, however, by aspiring interpreters who had no experience at all, and by certified interpreters who were so hungry for information that they would attend anything related to court interpreting, regardless of the level of instruction. The results of the workshops will be discussed below.

Stained glass bulletTashian, C. Lost in translation. What happens when an English phrase is translated (by computer) back and forth between 5 different languages? The authors of the Systran translation software probably never intended this application of their program. As of September 2003, translation software is almost good enough to turn grammatically correct, slang-free text from one language into grammatically incorrect, barely readable approximations in another. But the software is not equipped for 10 consecutive translations of the same piece of text. The resulting half-English, half-foreign, and totally non sequitur response bears almost no resemblance to the original. Remember the old game of "Telephone"? Something is lost, and sometimes something is gained. Try it for yourself! [Webmaster: Don't forget to check the box labelled "Include Chinese, Japanese, and Korean" for maximum confusion.]

They agreed that Deaf people deserve to have a facility designed to provide care to them alone - on an all-Deaf campus. Most mental health programs serving Deaf people are small units in hospitals providing treatment to the general public. These sights often must depend upon government grants of soft money. All three concluded that the best way to provide quality mental health care to Deaf and Hard of Hearing people would be to do acquire a "state of the art" facility and focus on creating the ideal environment in a privately owned endeavor.
