Video Blogging


I love this idea! I am a 42 year old mother of one, in college I got about halfway through interpreter training at a small school in texas. At that time we only had 2 teachers in the program and personal trauma coupled with intense interpersonal conflict with one of the teachers led me to dropping out. This was almost 20 years ago. But I've recently become interested in picking it up again. I adore the language in a way that is hard to explain without sounding really sappy. It feels so /right/ when I sign.

I am hoping to re-immerse myself via these blogs and become more fluent by watching it being used 'for real' rater than in college language classes. I've had very little exposure to the deaf community and I was really shy about making contact, (the deaf students at our school were very standoffish towards the student interpreters)

we've slowly started teaching baby sign to my son (he's 2 months) I have the glimmer of hope that the recent explosion of the use of babysign (something they taught us 20 years ago was possible) MIGHT open up the language barrier. It could be an exciting thing.

enough of that.

I do have a question. I'm seeing NO video. some open to blank white pages, some open to the same stills. Anyone know what is up with that? TIA

Media Player Classic

Try downloading and installing this: Media Player Classic

I suspect your Windows media handling settings are hosed; installing this should reset it. You might also want to check your browser's media and security settings to ensure that that you have it set to allow videos to be played after download.

If the settings are too confusing - and they often are - try downloading the Firefox web browser.

Also - check out DeafTV.Net. It's becoming the central site for discussion about deaf-created videos. There are lots of videos available at the Deaf Funny Videos link at the top right side of the page.
