A Deaf Printer Working on the Linotype Monitor


A Deaf printer, Mike Golightly, monitors the linotype machine, with Deaf supervisor, Jan DeLap.


As Deaf employees entered administrative roles at The Washington Post, they often supervised other Deaf printers. In this work context Deaf printers experienced an ease of communication as Deaf supervisors could provide feedback and instruction in American Sign Language.
