Online Deaf News

deafdigest.net/

The DeafDigest has a wealth of information on deaf issues and deaf concerns in the U.S. and the world for everyone who is interested in the deaf and hard of hearing. Barry Strassler is the editor and brings it to your e-mail inbox at no cost every Monday.  It contains unique deaf stories related to everyday life and deaf sports news. You can also find employment opportunities in deaf-related fields. David Pierce publishes his cartoon "The Old Fogeys" which demonstrates "old classic humor of days gone past combined with today’s Deaf Issues and Deaf Concerns." I find the cartoons are geared to adults and teenagers who have had some experience in the deaf world and deaf education.

The DeafDigest has links to products for the deaf, such as Harris Communications, the Deaf Pager Store, and relay services from AT & T.

You can sign up for the Blue Edition or the Gold Edition. The Blue Edition has  the news in full. The Gold Edition has links to the news stories.

The following are a couple of stories published last October 2011:

Deaf ChessAfrican Sign Language Dictionary
Abraham Glasser, New York, won the US Chess Association of the Deaf championship, which took place last week at St Paul, Minnesota. This organization has changed its name and it is now the United States Association for Deaf Chess Players. Finishing runner up is Dale Nichols of Minneapolis.

Zimbabwe has come up with a sign language dictionary which is quite an accomplishment. Reason is that different sign languages exist in the country. And the dictionary tries to involve these different signs for the same word. This project involved deaf leaders from different parts of the nation. And it took a year for their efforts to bear fruit.
