Most conference presenters could learn from Deaf presenters - PowerPoints are MUCH less text dense and MUCH more visual for one, and none of the presenters at are glued to their notes. 😊

The housekeeping information at the World Congress of the World Federation of the Deaf is delivered in International Sign with lots of humorous references to safety information on aircraft. Note the handshape used for pointing gestures! πŸ˜‚

Another cool deaf dude is Vinton Cerf, who was one of the two people said to have Β«inventedΒ» the Internet. He was partly motivated by the need to communicate directly with his colleagues, and wrote an article in the American Annals of the Deaf in 1978 (!) about e-mails.

Abort the gender gap @ the new WFD board. The work for closing this gap must start already in the national deaf communities by having a focus on the (in)visible social structures, language and representation. Feminism is for improving humanism.

Andrea Saks Next step is to establish international standards for relay services, so deaf people can access these regardless of country or technology used.

So that’s over. In my view the main overarching issue is access to language. For deaf children, sign languages are very logical languages to use - and therefore it becomes language rights/issues. This is the approach we’re taking in Scotland with . 1/7

WARNING: Please arrive at CDG airports (Terminal 1, 2 and 3) very well in advance. Had to wait in a very long queue for non-EU passport control booths. Almost missed my flight!

I am glad to see the visible presence of Deaf early-career and established researchers from all over the world at in Paris. It is obvious that their contributions lead to better understanding of Deaf people, Deaf communities, education and sign languages. Thanks a bunch!
