I have been traveling for years, sometimes with others and sometime alone. I am hearing challenged, with a master's degree in education of deaf children, and some of my own experiences traveling have been as follows: 1) Hearing challenged people are not stupid - we don't need to be yelled at (it wouldn't help anyway), nor talked down to. 2) Any announcements coming out of loud speakers are probably not going to be heard well enough to be understood (background noise alone will cancel out much). So we are not sure which line to be in, etc. Directions on a visual board of some kind is needed. Just the high points. 3) Sign language interpreter (ASL) for deaf persons is an excellent idea. Would be nice if there could be one employee on every flight who was trained in this skill. Hearing challenged persons most likely do not need, nor know sign language so don't need. 4) A few months ago an agent at the gate seemed to be handling the boarding of two planes (side by side on tarmac) . Not only I but several other people found ourselves on the wrong plane. It got sorted out before take off, but could have been prevented with some kind of visual instructions. 5) I am a fan of Alaska and love to fly on the planes. Great reputation. If some of our concerns could be heeded, how much more would Alaska's good reputation grow?

I couldn’t even see any subtitles which made it seem pointless if for a deaf and hard of hearing audience. I agree with another poster it would be better to have a deaf person explaining it all in ASL with plain English subtitles for those who aren’t fluent in sign. Also, the ad states that there are lots of notices through the loudspeaker but doesn’t provide any alternative source of that information—maybe a handout that could be available? A friend of mine who is blind once complained they always demonstrate the oxygen mask and life jacket and she had no idea what they were like. I was able to organise them to be shown to her, but there are probably many who would like to know.

Right! Once again expecting someone who doesn't speak your language to "read" your language. Deaf people use ASL which is a language- not English so English subtitles are only useful to those who are bilingual. Do you speak Chinese? NO?? oh ok here... read these Chinese subtitles,####### there you go. =) Have a Deaf person do the Ad in ASL or atleast put an interpreter bubble in it.

Excellent video! It's a lot to read very quickly. How about having a sign language interpreter in the "bubble" as travel tips are given? May help even more. Also, at 2:06 it appears as the "passenger" is seated at an overwing exit. Not sure about current FAR's concerning this.? Later in the video it is clear that the pax moved to another seat :c)
