Photo Session Outtake
On Friday, I had a photo session for a new page I want to put on my business website. Quite often, people ask me what I do, and when I tell them "I transcribe college classes and other events in realtime for Deaf and hard of hearing students and professionals" (my standard elevator-pitch boilerplate), they have a hard time picturing what that actually looks like. So I'm going to be putting together a demo page, complete with screencasts of my CART output, pictures of my setup both in my home office and onsite at various events (drawn from some of the same photos as the ones in the banner collage at the top of the blog), and eventually I even hope to have a full video signed in ASL with voice description and captions demonstrating the CART process from start to finish.
It'll be a while before I can get that last one together, but I'm hoping to have the preliminary demo page up and running in the next week or so. It would have been sooner, but right after the photo session, I saw that my laptop's power cord had spontaneously stopped working. Yes, three days before the semester. Always the way, isn't it? Fortunately there was time to get a new power cord shipped out with Monday morning delivery (in time for my Monday evening CART gig), but it put a crimp in my weekend website improvement plans. So until I get my laptop working again (I'm writing this on the tablet PC you see me holding above, with an external USB keyboard plugged into it), I'm only posting my favorite outtake from the session. See if you can spot the reason why it's not going up on the site. Hint: Look in the lower right hand corner.
