at the general opening ceremony.
The Saga High School Athletic League provided sign-language interpreting at the general opening ceremony in order to convey the presence of the festival of a high school sport to the spectators.
It followed the measure which the Saga Prefecture in western Japan hammers out based on the "universal design in the sport" that everyone enjoys a sport regardless of the existence of age or a disability.
The two certified sign language interpreters who also a staff member of the Prefecture Deaf Support Center were there to do the job.
