Rule 47

When voicing for a Deaf performer remember: 90% of the audience is Deaf, 9% are interpreters, interpreting students, or hearing spouses and parents who sign and won’t really need your services, almost the entire remaining 1% are ASL students or parents who kinda sign-all thrilled to see ASL and hear any interpretation. Your actual audience are the handful of Sign-Impaired dragged here by their ASL/interpreting student dates, and they just want this over so they can get to dinner or the making-out part of the evening.

No sweaty palms needed.

These blogs (I have two) began as a series of sayings I use to teach interpreting workshops, and political diatribes on Facebook. They moved from Facebook to this blog site: 1. as a way to remove them from my head (cuts down on the noise in there); and, 2. to give a better home to both my "less serious and satire laden posts" and my "more serious and satire laden posts." I guess it's up to you to decide which is which.
