Communication access on the radio

Could radio become accessible for Deaf people who use sign language? Yes! Véro Leduc, Executive Director of the Centre québécois pour la déficience auditive, explains how in an interview on Radio-Canada.

This excellent interview gives a glimpse of the barriers faced by the Deaf community. For example, unlike more than 60 countries who have officially recognized their sign languages, Quebec Sign Language (QSL) and American Sign Language (ASL) are not recognized as official languages in Quebec or Canada.

Communication access is part of Quebec Accessible’s vision for a new provincial accessibility law.
