To continue the theme Woke Capital went on a tweetstorm about, as mentioned in this post (and go back and read his whole thread):
Sounds like a make-work scheme plus pushing identity politics activism as Woke Capital documented (we have discussed woke deаf identity politics activism too, here).
Seriously, wouldn’t it be better to have someone hearing who can sign what is being said? There would be less lag time between what is said and when it is understood by deаf people, plus not the problem of ‘telephone’, i.e. accumulation of errors by repeating information through multiple sources.
Of course, with closed-captioning, why fricking bother, except for identity politics reasons?
No reason those who can read sіgn Іаnguаgе can’t read text; I doubt there’s very few who can read sіgn Іаnguаgе but not text…
