video relay service

If you’re in the mood to support increased accessibility for Deaf persons, here’s a petition that might make a difference.
Video relay service is a parallel telephone technology that allows Deaf persons to communicate using American Sign Language (native language) rather than written English (second language). While many Deaf people do become fluent in written English, ASL remains the culturally preferred means of communication. Anything we can do to support the maintenance of ASL and the continuation of language diversity is, I believe, vitally important to the future of humanity.
