Vicdeaf is delighted to announce a partnership with ABC News to deliver an Auslan interpreted national news bulletin, coinciding with National Week of Deaf People!

 

This initiative has been over two years in the making, and it is fantastic to see Australia’s national broadcaster commit to a partnership with Vicdeaf to provide access to Deaf and hard of hearing Australians to watch the news.

It would be much appreciated if you could share this amongst your contacts, clients and colleagues – share this exciting news far and wide so that as many Deaf and hard of hearing Australians, their families and friends can tune in – and hopefully this is the beginning of a substantial and sustainable partnership.

 

Mark Quinn will be the interpreter on screen, and I will be interviewed as part of the bulletin – so make sure you tune in yourself!  Thursday, 6pm, Channel 24 (ABC News).
