People should be encouraged to read if they have a hearing impairment and they aren't blind. This way, other people can benefit from their full screen.


Is this a joke, I really hope it is because otherwise that's a really intolerant comment to make

Pay what you want for emergency staff if I remember correctly. Might have also included the option to pay nothing.
I know this question is out of topic, but anyone know, why they use sign interpreters on TV , while a subtitle will do the same job?

prerecorded tv software can add words after and cleaned up to make sure it’s 100% correct “LIVE TV” is delayed few minutes so need someone to sign at the same time so no delay

I believe there was some sort of deal under Equality Act. Also as a society, it's kinda like
how at marathons, people give out water to runners.. Even though runners are perfectly capable of getting their own water ..

It's a good question though!

Live TV delay is only a matter of seconds, definitely not minutes.

Good question. My wife is (recently) profoundly deaf but and we have learned the basics of sign assisted English. The HUGE investment in time and effort to learn ad become fully proficient in BSL would simply not be worth it as nobody we know (or have ever met) can understand it. So it is very limited in its use for most people.
Subtitles are a godsend and as good as (or probably better than BSL) communicating complex messages. However the deaf community are very active in promoting their rights and public organisations are fearful of the backlash from being seen to be excluding a disadvantaged minority. Just my opinion and happy to be put right by more knowledgeable folks.
Got it for £12.80 using code SAVELOCAL. Not sure of account specific but doesn't look like one...

It's a different skill though? Subtitles are only useful if you have already learnt to read words / writing. I presume that kids who are deaf are thought sign language from a toddler but you don't usually learn to read until you are older, assuming you get the help you need to learn it. There probably are people that can sign but not read.

I don't mind companies doing a bit more for any particular category, however, this shouldn't be compulsory as it is.

Thanks buddy. Ordered with the code
How do these things work? Can you start the course as and when or is it a set date the course starts?
Use this mainly to communicate with kids who have hearing difficulties and can't read yet.

I presume the reason you have folk signing alongside some shows is for exactly the same reason. Don't forget: it's possible to be deaf and dyslexic as well!

Really? Please give me a break with this intolerance at the rest of the us. I respect any person no matter what disabilities or lifestyle do they have, however some of us are smoking and we have the right to do so, while the same or others eat meat and sugar, despite vegans advice on here. A deaf person can read and this is what he should do in respect to anyone, instead of having a monkey on half of the screen.

I would assume that it is because not everyone will be able to read, or at least read quick enough to keep up.

I also think sign language should be on the National Curriculum, all kids should be taught it.

Blind people wouldn't be able to read for sure. But anyone that could see will do. If somebody haven't learned how to read, is not interested in understanding what's on TV. And this in the school, as compulsory, will be such a waste for our kids.
