Last week, I had the great honor to speak with three very awesome people in a Google+ Hangout: Christian Vogler, director of the Technology Access Program at Gallaudet, Andrew Phillips, policy counsel at the NAD and Willie King, the director of product management atZVRS.
These three folks have one thing in common – they are deaf.
I can’t understand sign language, and I speak way too fast for anyone to be able to read my lips. How did it go without a hitch? Thanks to a Google+ Hangout app announced by the Google Accessibility team last week, a sign language expert and a fantastic CART transcriptionist, Laura Brewer. All in real-time, all virtually.
