We are Sign Time, a company that has been creating high-quality signing avatars for years, making information more accessible to the d/Deaf and hard of hearing.
Our avatar has a broad vocabulary in languages such as Austrian Sign Language, German Sign Language, and British Sign Language, and over the past decade, we have made everything from presidential broadcasts to music videos accessible. Now, we are making the jump to American Sign Language!
In order to make this a reality, we have launched a Kickstarter campaign, and we are asking you to spread the news about us to your audience!
Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) turns 30 on July 26, 2020. Are we done? NO! What can you do? Support us, make a video of yourself with #IAMTHEADA, advocate, stand up for your rights. Will you support us?
Governor John Carney on Thursday signed the fifteenth modification to his State of Emergency declaration, rescheduling Delaware’s presidential primary for July 7. The Delaware Department of Elections will mail absentee ballot applications to all registered Democrats and Republicans in the State of Delaware, providing all eligible registered Delaware voters the opportunity to vote by absentee ballot in the presidential primary election.
Eligible Delaware voters will be permitted to select the “sick” or “temporarily or permanently physically disabled” options on their absentee ballot application to cast a vote in the presidential primary election, even if they are not exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19. Voters must return the application to the Delaware Department of Elections or complete the process online to receive an absentee ballot. The Delaware Department of Elections will operate at least six polling places in each county to allow voters to cast ballots in person should they choose not to vote by absentee ballot.
Governor Carney’s order on Thursday also reschedules school board elections for July 21, and places additional requirements on municipalities that are conducting elections. The order requires districts and municipalities to enforce social distancing during elections, require face coverings, and limit crowds to 10 or fewer people at polling places.
