Deaf-Blind Interpreting: Going from Fear to Fun!
Transcript of Deaf-Blind Interpreting: Going from Fear to Fun!
Kevin Cikatricis, CI & CT, NAD:V Master
“The key factor is the interpreter's ability to process complex audio and visual information, absorb and fully understand it in terms of my particular perspectives; then express it within a sphere of clarity without losing any of the culturally rich components. It is important that I know the interpreter as well as they know me so that our teamwork is in harmony. Other factors are clear, large hand shapes, the ability to take "visually noisy" signing and transform it into "visually/tactually quiet" information. It takes a great deal of work on the part of the Deaf-Blind person who is receiving the language either in close visual range or tactile to conceptualize, (picture), without being able to quite see the language. It takes a lot of concentration, intelligence and patience to work with interpreters, just as it does for interpreters to work with Deaf-Blind people! Mutual respect and teamwork has to be in place in order for success to take place.” - Anonymous
