Video Description

Patricia and Peter discuss stories of their respective families and travel.

Reviewer Notes

  • Names of cities outside of the US are mentioned, and fingerspelling is repeated patiently. Features of travel locations and family experiences are shared. The hearing speaker is low-key, speaking at a medium to slow pace.
  • This is an appropriate video for a beginning/intermediate student as it is slow paced and the Deaf consumer produces English like signing. The cities that are fingerspelled were difficult to pronounce if the interpreter is unfamiliar with Thailand. The interpreter should focus on lag time to ensure they are not on top of the speaker.

About this Video

The interactive videos in this series were created in partnership during the Graduation to Certification program through a collaboration between the CATIE Center and the Duluth Branch of the NAACP. These unscripted conversations were interpreted by novice interpreters in the GTC program and the video was edited to the best of our ability to remove the interpretation to create practice material. There may be some legacies of the original interpretation such as repetition due to the original interpreter asking for clarification or sometimes all of the interpretation may not be edited out due to overlapping communication.
