[TRANSCRIPT: One thing I’d like to change in the world is to increase the availability of apps for interpreting services, as well as interpreting services in general and the quality of those services. Many businesses still stubbornly exploit family members for interpreting. I want to change that. We need one legal system for the U.S. and the world. So DeafBlind people can enjoy everyday life like everyone else, not just in a select few states. Some states have this, some don’t. Some are strict, some aren’t. I want systematic change.]
