Hearing Technology

Part Four: Hearing Technology from Chime on Vimeo.

By an area that offers no captioning access, subtitling access, or narrative and relies on sign for it. Surely the primary users of such technology are NOT sign-using people, but others who need alternatives to sign use?

This seems some half-arsed semi-cultural 'support' system  (There has to be a cash angle somewhere else why play this 'Deaf Card' approach?), that flies in the face of basic access requirements, for goodness sake STOP listening to a minority of people who actually DON'T want any other access but sign.  Such output is just spreading disinformation on access/need for the majority with hearing loss.

The output is unjustified on cultural grounds too!
