This is deaf awareness week. Adobe should be involve the celebrated with other deaf designer, filmmakers, and artist. Share their works too.
What a thought-provoking question. I'm not an Adobe employee, but I've spent plenty of time in Adobe offices around North America. I know Adobe takes very seriously the idea of inclusion for all. I'm curious if there is such a group, and, if not, whether there's a need for one. I'm going to run this up the flag pole and ask some Adobe employees to have a look.
I'm the program manager for Adobe Accessibility. At this point, we don't have a forum or any other specific program for Deaf or hard of hearing designers, but if you have any ideas on where we could be helpful, please feel free to share them with me. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Interesting idea. At an Adobe Max that I was TAing, one person there was deaf. He had a signer to help him with what the speaker was saying, but he was having a horrible time, as the pace was so fast that he couldn't watch what was going on on the main screen, his own screen, and the signer at the same time. I was trying to help him get caught up, but it was a losing battle.
Chuck Uebele can understand how it feel, I did experienced that too. It is tough for having three different things happening at the same time. We need a magically Chameleons’ eyes. Ha. Unless there is a deaf person teaching in ASL. It will be great and in class will have a different teaching method than normal class lecture suitable for hearing environment. .
Pariah Burke Design Community (asl user) is still new. I am still trying to get more deaf designers to be actively involved in the group. I don’t want to do all of the vlogs and posts for the group and let others do it too. 😕 I still finding a way on how to make them to participate more in the group. I don’t know if it is ready to go public about this group.

I understand. When you are, send me a private message. I have a good following on a number of social media and I can get the link into the hands of a lot of people at Adobe.
This is amazing. So glad I stumbled on this.
We did attempt to start a group in Rochester, NY called Deaf Art Pub. I also tried centralizing all Deaf/hoh art/design majors at Rochester Institute of Technology in one Facebook page. It didn't seem Facebook was a successful way to collect us all in one place. Am always open to trying again!
Deaf Art Pub (DAP) met up several times and it was great. I was hoping that group could act as mentors for those aspiring students at RIT. Now, with the rise of #deafinmedia, this is more needed than ever.
Please do let me know if you are still interested and we can definitely make a push for this to happen!
