Professor: Deaf community needs better access, awareness
International Day of Sign Languages was last week. As a result, many people focused on how the Deaf Community communicates. The World Federation of the Deaf mentioned how Deaf people have their own communities, cultures, languages, and sign languages. However, many areas do not give sufficient resources to support the Deaf community. Areas in Indiana such as West Lafayette and Indianapolis lack closed captions for state events. Having more access to languages nationwide would benefit many people, including the deaf community.
