Hi Hillary -
Of course Ron can answer for himself, but I thought I might guess at
the answer to your question...
Ron is the pastor of a Deaf Church, with around 50 to 100 Deaf
congregation members, who use American Sign Language. The Deaf
members are not on the SignWriting List. Nor are they necessarily
online at all....Ron explained to me that some of his Deaf members
are very well educated and know several languages, however there are
others in his church who do not read and write English well, but sign
beautifully. So I would assume that Ron will have to sign to
interpret your survey into American Sign Language, so his Deaf
friends can respond...
Then he will have to translate what they say in American Sign
Language, into English and write that for you - So that is a big job
for Ron and takes time...
I am so happy for you, Hillary, that all is going so well with your thesis!
