Folks. Sign language is more than hands. More than fingers. More than hand shapes. It’s body, face, position... A glove will never ‘translate’ sign language in a way that is beneficial to the deaf. Fellow nerds, when designing, remember this: “nothing about us, without us.”

I'm disabled and I was just able to watch Hamilton on TV with captions! I could never have understood or appreciated that show otherwise. Given that Broadway is closed for a while I wish more shows would be filmed

Realising what you take for granted should encourage you to take action so that the world is more accessible & inclusive towards disabled people. Obviously I’m never going to see rain, fine, but a large print menu now & then or accessible street infrastructure would be great!
