An usa approach to raising awareness (Video). Do people in the USA really offer the deaf Braille menus ? Not taking the point about lip-reading, this is just an 'ASL plug' and doesn't contribute to real awareness. Lots of signers DO lip-read ! However the two young ladies shouldn't be wandering the streets with no skill but ASL to communicate to others..... they should have some alternative handy.
Ergo "I don't need to have an interpreter with me all the time because I can communicate fine without one..." assuming everyone has an pencil and paper handy or uses ASL presumably.
