Hello!!

I'm Katie!
A long time ago, may be three years ago, I was involved in an interpreting program. But I realized that the program was not a good fit for me personally. I stepped down, transferred schools, and I actually just graduated from the University of Redlands in California.

Now I want more practice with sign because my skills have suffered a lot from not practicing; it has been a long time since I've signed with anyone who also knows ASL. So I'm really excited to meet ASL students, Deaf,  and other members of the signing community.

Thanks!!

Hi Katie! 

I am hard of hearing, but have never been pushed by anyone to learn to sign, so never did. My hearing though seems to just continue to get worse, so I'm pushing myself. I would love someone to practice with! 

I am in the beginners stage, and only know a handful of signs, can have short conversations depending on the topic. 

I am thinking of starting a club at Job Corps, where I'm studying, and think that this kind of video chat site would be a good idea to help others learn also. 

Give me a shout out of you're interested in chatting or signing.  :)

Have a great day!

Hi,

I hope you're doing well. I'm Celina Collot, Project Manager at Collot Baca Subtitling (www.collotbaca-subs.com). I'm contacting you because we have a project for translating several hours of interviews spoken in American Sign Language into English, and we would like to know if you'd be available and interested in taking it. There may also be some dialogue in spoken English, which we need transcribed as well.

We need the dialogues to be timecoded and the speakers to be identified. This will be done in our own software, which is specialized for creating scripts. We will provide proper training for this, of course.

The available rate is $5 USD per minute of video content. The subject of the interviews is deaf people talking about their lives.

At the moment we have 3 videos, each one about 14 minutes in duration, and need them all by next Friday November 1st, 18:00 CEST. These three videos in particular consist on young people chatting in a bar.

Should you be interested in taking one or more of the videos, please feel free to send us your CV at [email protected]

I look forward to your reply.

Regards,
 

Celina Collot

    • Hi! My name is Camille. I have a college assignment that requires me to interview anyone who wears cochlear implants, who are hard of hearing or is deaf. I'm hoping we can meet up or maybe set up a virtual meet, like facetime or maybe zoom? I know you're probably wondering why should you help such a random person like me? I don't know why but..I can assure you it's for a good cause. It's for educational purposes. Your time will be much appreciated. If you're interested, please email me
    • Hi Andie! I'm a Speech Language Pathologist Assistant. I'm also in school right now taking communications disorders and deaf education. I'm hoping to become an SLP someday. I have an assignment that requires me to meet people who are deaf, hard of hearing or are wearing cochlear implants. Would it be possible for me to interview Josh? I'm also learning ASL, I know some words but I rely heavily on fingerspelling. Please e-mail me if you're available.  My e-mail is [email protected]
    • Hello, I'm Kiara (hearing), currently a student in ASL- English Interpreting program. I'm enrolled in ASL 4. If you are in the EST time zone and looking for a partner, let me know.  
    • Good Afternoon on this very cold, very snowy day in Southwestern Ontario! My name is Lisa & I'm a Day Program Coordinator for Adults with Exceptionalities. I support  a young man named Josh who is aaaaaamzing & I want to help him make meaningful connections with other people who have a hearing impairment. His ASL is quite good, but more than anything, I'd simply like him to socialize! He is very sweet, sensitive & likes to create his own signs sometimes vs  learning the proper ones!
