The people planned a talkative meeting
for persons with hearing loss
Saga-shi, Saga Prefecture:
The Prefecture Deaf Support Center at Saga-shi in Japan's southern island has begun a "talkative meeting" to offer adults with hearing loss an opportunity to chat with each other.
Recently more aged people lose hearing ability and tend to speak in a loud voice. Many people don't understand such a situation that the aged often shut themselves.
Therefore the center planned an event on May 31 for the first time to invite the clients to communicate freely with their counterparts. The participants enjoyed the meeting through writing.
It will be expected to open for about 2 hours from the afternoon once a month from now on.
