Per the following proposed new standard in the draft --
"1194.23(a2) Telecommunications products or systems that provide a function
allowing voice communication and have sufficient bandwidth to support
real-time video signing but do not themselves provide real-time video
communication sufficient to support signing: (1) shall provide a standard
connection point attaching a real-time signing device and . . ."
Is there some reason the video stream should be limited to "signing"? Good
quality video would be extremely helpful by providing access to
speechreading, gestural cues, and other non-verbal communication supports
for people with hearing loss who do not use sign as a communication mode.
