Day 2 - Communication
Our means of communicating with others around us vary a lot. It really depends on a variety of factors: degree of loss, age of onset of loss, and personal preference.
I grew up being able to speak and communicate efficiently one-on-one for the most part, I can still do that but I prefer having an ASL interpreter for: important or complicated issues, groups, a far away speaker, and the like.
Another communication option is using a Braille computer with a communicator option that allows the user to connect via bluetooth with any iOs phone and message back and forth with another person.
Other ways are explained in this video below that is captioned for the "signing impaired". Just click the "CC" in the bottom right corner.
I hope this is educational so far, give me a shoutout for any more questions or information.
