A Piece of Deaf Culture

o   Question: How should one communicate with an interpreter

o   Key Answer points:

§  Discuss subject-related signs with the interpreter before speaking to audience. For example, if you will be using a lot of science-related terms, discuss these terms beforehand so the interpreter will know how to relay the information

§  When talking, look at your audience, not the interpreter.

§  Allow the interpreter time to catch up when discussion goes from one person to another
