    I was already aware of this topic but I was more impressive with this interpeter! She’s an example of what type of interpeter should be participating in a high profile case like this.

    Is that interpreter particularly great? To me (and I’m hearing so maybe I don’t belong here- just tell me and I won’t comment here anymore if you want) she looks about the same as the two hearing people I knew who were very fluent- one was an interpreter and the other became one later. I thought about becoming one for a while. So I assumed that all interpreters were like that. I’m reading in a couple of places on this blog that they’re not, that’s awful!

    Yes, the interpreter is great. Her ASL is very fluent.
