CHRISSY: What is American Sign Language? Ah! NO! Hello! Welcome back to The Essential Sign! I’m Chrissy and today I’m doing a video inspired by Cheyenna Clearbrook and Jazzy X. They both uploaded videos with this idea “Can Siri Understand My Deaf Voice?” (Deaf accent) So I figured it was my turn to try it and see if Siri can understand me. Why not?!? Honestely I’m a little nervous because typically I try not to use my voice on this channel because people make assumptions about deaf people based off our voices. So… Please don’t. I did thirteen years of speech therapy practicing my voice and I still practice today. I have spent a long time working on my voice. Deaf people have accents because we can’t hear our voice…So yeah. To use our voice we have to practice and try and figure out sounds it’s not easy. So I thought “Why not try it?!” Maybe Siri can understand me? I’m gonna go ahead and do this. Okay, I need to screen record. CHRISSY: Hi Siri! (SIRI: Hi Christine!) CHRISSY: Hey! It worked! CHRISSY: Which is better Nikon or Canon? (SIRI: I found this on the web.) CHRISSY: It worked! It got it right! CHRISSY: Why doesn’t Youtube have good closed captions? (SIRI: Sorry I missed that. Could you say it again, please?) CHRISSY: It says HomeGoods closed caption… Wtf.. I said “Why doesn’t Youtube- ” (SIRI: We were talking about you, not me.) CHRISSY: What is your favorite color? (SIRI: My favorite color is… well, it’s sort of greenish, but with more dimensions.) CHRISSY: Well, it’s green. CHRISSY: What is your favorite type of animal? (SIRI: I don’t like to play favorites.) CHRISSY: Do elephants eat nuts? (SIRI: I found this on the web:) CHRISSY: I got it right. CHRISSY: What is a Cochlear Implant? (SIRI: Here is what I found: Cookie) CHRISSY: No! I said, “What is a cochlear implant?” not “What is a C-U-C-K” WHY? No! The labeled it a cookie, it’s not a cookie CHRISSY: What are hearing aids? (SIRI: Sorry I didn’t catch that. Could you please repeat it?) CHRISSY: Where are hearing you? CHRISSY: What is a deaf accent? “A good accent” No haha (SIRI: Here is what I found) CHRISSY: Do I have a lisp? (SIRI: I couldn’t say) CHRISSY: I said “lisp” not “booth.” A lot of people say I have a lisp. I don’t have a lisp I just can’t hear my voice. What is American Sign Language?
