I tried to leave a comment at the news station that broadcast this segment, but I didn't have a username and password. I think it's great that they had a deaf newscaster, but they should have used a professional interpreter to voice for the author. The newscaster glossed her signs word for word instead of interpreting them into English. To a hearing person who doesn't know ASL, the voicing would make no sense. The author's articulate message was lost. - Jess
