Uber Is Assisting Riders In Communicating With Hearing-Impaired Drivers
Communicating with a hearing-impaired driver in your Uber can be difficult, but it’s certainly important. Now, the app wants to help. It’s hard to find good news for Uber these days, what with massive money losses and its expulsion from major cities, but a recent update to the app serves as a bright spot in a rather dark time for the company. On Thursday, September 28, the transportation giant debuted new tools needed to connect with drivers who use American Sign Language, or ASL for short. Now, you can learn how to sign basic phrases in ASL using the Uber app. The app will also provide a GIF with the selected words in ASL, making it easier still for you to communicate with a driver who is hard of hearing or deaf.
