Due to the Coronavirus / Covid – 19 / the pandemic, people are spending their holiday gatherings online via Zoom, Google Meetings, and Skype versus traveling and getting together indoors. Holidays can be a stressful time for anyone, but they especially can be for deaf people due to dinner table syndrome, an act of being the only deaf person in the room where everyone else doesn’t know sign language or attempt to accommodate in any other way.

Trying to read lips in person is difficult enough, but now with video chats, mouths are smaller, the connection is so-so, and the cameras aren’t always very clear. Here’s a few tips to help you make your Zoom calls and otherwise more accessible.
