“Without sign language, the internet is just pictures and incomprehensible text”

What do we know about deaf people living in Europe? Everywhere in our continent we see deaf people in public spaces, talking in sign language. Sometimes we spot the small translator in the corner of one programme on public television. But for people who can hear normally, they very often have no idea of the needs, daily routines of deaf people. We very rarely hear their voices and have very little clue of their perception of the world. To give them a voice, Sphera member Krytyka Politycnza decided to interview Marta and Adam, a couple in their 30s and activists at Polish Deaf Association.
