Fake sign language interpreter
delivered gibberish in Florida

Associated Press, by Staff

TAMPA, Florida -- Hearing-impaired people tuning in to a news conference about the arrest of a suspected serial killer got a message of gibberish from an American Sign Language interpreter. As Tampa police Chief Brian Dugan announced the arrest of Howell Donaldson Wednesday night, interpreter Derlyn Roberts was there beside him, making signs that made no sense. "She sat up there and waved her arms like she was singing Jingle Bells," Rachell Settambrino, who is deaf and teaches American Sign Language at the University of South Florida told the Tampa Bay Times through an interpreter. Among the things Roberts signed, according

Seems like a lot of these sign language people are phonies.

Please accept my apologies for finding this category of humor rich and rewarding....goofy and very funny......going all the way back to the ancient SNL skit with the interpreter who would repeat verbatum the original but would YELL for the benefit of the hard of hearing.
(Greg Morris ?)

No disrespect to our hearing impaired community
but....come on....there is something about this whole thing that is very funny.

Even the legit ´signers´ seem to be abbreviating and editing and struggling to catch up with the complexity and subtlety of the spoken word.

Can you hear me ?

What ?

Sorry.

They have software that does the job, albeit none too well, but it seems to me, wouldn´t that be better than an incompetent human interpreter? What they use for youtube translation to text is a bit garbled, but you certainly get the sense of what is being said. Also, while this was an important news conference, the main idea as they say, is that the murderer had been caught, and residents of the area need no longer fear him. The news channel was probably flashing the fact (that the murderer had been captured) in text underneath the speaker.

I also find this too funny for words. Especially since tech exists which can reasonably translate speech into text in almost real time.

I´m hearing impaired, use closed caption on my TVs, and remain perpetually amused at the antics of the interpreters, since most everyone else watching who needs cc has it on.

And the Barack Obola South African schizophrenic fake interpreter may have been the high point in the kenyan klown´s presidency.

I have found that "signing" while a person speaks annoying. Your eye goes to the signer and the spoken words are missed. Except for satisfying the PC crowd what does it accomplish? There may be a dozen or so news people at a press conference, how many are deaf? For those watching on TV, if they are deaf, they are using Closed Captioning.

Must jump in and praise the sign language interpreter for Houston´s mayor. He was at every hurricane Harvey press briefing. He astounded everyone when the mayor passed the podium to the police chief who gave his report in Spanish and the interpreter continued signing in Spanish without skipping a beat.

Was it genuine frontier gibberish? How long has she been in hire as a sign language messenger, and how much has the City paid Derlyn Roberts? If she doesn´t know how to sign, it´s good that she´s been found out.

#2´s recalling of Garrett Morris of the Not Ready for Prime Time Players (1975-1979) brings a smile. Beis-a-bol been belly belly good to me.

In 1965 when Beatlemania was in full swing the Beatles released the album Help, featuring the Fab Four posing in what appeared to be semaphore. It turns out that the picture that had the four of them spelling H E L P in semaphore properly just didn´t look good enough, so the other picture of their spelling out N U J V wound up on the cover of the 12" record album. (In Boy Scouts we had to learn semaphore, and send and receive messages with twin flags. I couldn´t do that today if my life depended on it. Too many intervening years to remember that.)

#7 makes a good point, but the press conferences show on sets in public settings, too (diners, airports, etc.), where hard of hearing folks don´t have CC. It´s easier to teach yourself to visually tune out the interpreter than it is for deaf people to train themselves to tune in to the voices.

It´s hard enough to do well at interpreting in real time when you know all the words being used; but when you have to finesse unfamiliar words and concepts in the middle of a statement you risk losing whole sentences to re-sync with the voice.

And no, finger-spelling everything isn´t an option, e v e n i f y o u a r e p e r f e c t w i t h y o u r f i n g e r s p e l l i n g s k i l l s.

Am not hearing impaired. Sometimes I wish I were when rap concerts are going on near me. I usually turn on the CC for WC Fields movies because he loves obscure words. Sometimes the woefully inadequate and totally incorrect captioning is almost as funny as WC. Take for instance

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFxsbxqzeqo

At one point he says "Rover as Man´s Best Fried" and the CC changes Rover to Robot. Software isn´t the answer to everything.

I first started using CC for the British and Scottish show on TV. Now, as the years advance and the hearing recedes, I find I am using it all the time. I think signers can be useful in some situations but I remember a concert that I attended a few years ago. I am not sure why completely deaf people would attend a concert but this one had someone signing the words of the music. The signer was so flamboyant and over the top with his moves that it detracted from the fine performance of the singers.

Al Franken Still Hasn’t Said

Franken announced last Thursday that he would be resigning “in the coming weeks” after eight different women accused him of groping or forcibly kissing them. “The timing of Franken’s resignation remains unclear, as is his motive in delaying it,” New York Magazine’s Ed Kilgore noted at the time. Franken has yet to offer any more specificity about when he’s going to follow through in resigning. Franken’s office did not return multiple requests for comment on the subject. Franken begrudgingly offered his resignation after 35 Democratic senators called on him to do so, three weeks after he was first accused

Gillibrand said, “President Trump should resign. These allegations are credible, they are numerous. I’ve heard these women’s testimony, and many of them are heartbreaking. And President Trump should resign his position.” She added, “Whether he will ever hold himself accountable is something you really can’t hold your breath for. And so, Congress should have hearings. They should do their investigation. They should have appropriate investigations of his behavior and hold him accountable.”
