Hello, welcome to My Page:
I love my job. I am a CART (Communication Access Realtime Translation) Captioner. It's a pleasure seeing my students achieve their goal. I have the opportunity to help someone achieve their dream job like I've achieved my dream job. Most of you know it took me almost a life time to become a court reporter/captioner. My job allows me to give back. Please consider giving. It will be most appreciated.
Please read below to learn more about hearing loss: Thank you for stopping by.
The Hearing Loss Association of America's (HLAA) Walk4Hearing increases awareness about hearing loss, helps to eradicate the stigma associated with it and raises funds to provide information and support for people with hearing loss. Since 2006, the Walk4Hearing has raised more than $6 million and has become the largest walk for hearing taking place in cities across the United States.
We walk because hearing loss is a public health issue third in line after heart disease and arthritis.
- 36 million people have some form of hearing loss
- 26 million people have noise-induced hearing loss that could have been prevented
- 2 to 3 out of every 1,000 children are born deaf or with a hearing loss
- 60 percent of the people with hearing loss are either in the work force or in educational settings
Hearing loss affects one's ability to communicate every day in different situations - from a dinner conversation at a noisy restaurant, on the phone, to not hearing alarm clocks and smoke alarms. For people with hearing loss, these situations can be become obstacles without the right information and support. HLAA provides the assistance and resources for people with hearing loss and their families to learn how to adjust to living with hearing loss.
Thank you in advance
