You know I was just thinking the other day how Trains, Buses, Ferries, Planes & even Stadiums, should provide the technology for those of us who are hearing impaired. A few months ago, I took the train to NYC and I had no idea what stop we were at, because I couldn't hear what was being said through the loud speaker. It was all mumble jumble to me! I ended up not going to a meeting because I got off the wrong stop.You become very frustrated & In all honesty I dont think its that Complicated to PROVIDE the services that I need? But then again they spend money on a brand new train..new seats etc & They still YET HAVENT PUT Anything up for the hearing impaired. WILL THEY? PROBABLY NOT....
Well, the good news is Today I came across an article Check out this article.. It really caught my eye so I had to post it here.
Settlement Means Those with Hearing Loss Will See Announcements on Ferries.
Well don't you think that all transportation carriers should offer visual captions for deaf & hard of hearing? I deafinitely do and OUR VOICES NEED TO BE HEARD & Apparently the only way we will be heard is if we just keep filing LAW SUITS against people. Now I am notcining more and more LAW SUITS for this situation. Hey I guess this is the only way people will learn...
What do you think?
Hope you all have a great day!
