Deafness is something that’s very easy to let pass. We don’t notice people that are deaf, because they tend not to make a ruckus when they’re around. Perhaps this is why we’ve made it compulsory for commercial building developers to accommodate those with physical disabilities, such as those that need wheelchairs and walkers to get around, but haven’t really done much in the way of allowing access to the various cues and signals that we hear in common spaces, such as airports, hospitals, offices, and schools.
We listen for elevator dings, phones to ring, and cars to honk. We provide brail on elevator buttons, but what can we do when it comes to accommodating people, in these very mundane, pedestrian but fundamental routines, that have hearing disabilities?
For one, we can provide better access to sign language translator support services. The hearing impaired, like those that require nurses or animals to assist them in seeing or getting around, require assistance with communicating to the rest of the world in everyday situations that we all take for granted (being able to freely raise a concern with a doctor during an office visit, for instance). It’s just these kinds of things that businesses like A-Sign Interpreters Inc. are extremely empathetic about.
A-Sign Interpreters Inc. understands that being without the ability to hear people and technology is fundamentally deficient in so many ways. One can learn to sign, but without a sign language translator then the people around this person wouldn’t have anybody to sign with.
