Deaf dating sites all have one thing in common. They are looking to creating a comfortable environment for the deaf to enable them to open up new avenues in friendship and companionship. The sites are tailor made to suit deaf people and it takes care of their disability like no other disability dating hands-free site can.
I happened to be next to a guy in traffic who had one, as I would later find out, and was talking away with nobody else in the car. Until I finally realized that he had a Hands free equipment, I thought that he was crazy person. I had never thought about how that could look to other people, but it looked to me like the guy was talking to himself.
One loving relative marveled that Kurnai danced with his deaf friend. She had no concept that sound through the tongue can 'feel' music through vibrations in the floor. Another gave thanks that now he had passed to the other life he would be able to 'talk'. Another joked that Kurnai had told him he was glad he was deaf. The gathered hearing community laughed in disbelief. The gathered deaf community smiled and nodded in agreement.
Problem #2. When using a bluetooth headset the in call volume is awful. If there is any background noise at all, I can't hear the person on the other end. I am hoping for a software upgrade that will solve this one, as using a hands free device is almost a requirement in my line of work.
This article is offered as a wake-up call for those who pity the deaf or see them as broken. The vast majority do not want pity but rather the respect and acknowledgment that they can do pretty much hearing aids anything in the world.....except hear.
