Signs: Canadian restaurant with deaf servers


Convert Text to Speech
Diners at a new Canadian restaurant staffed almost entirely with deaf servers are being encouraged to order using sign language. "Signs," on Toronto's Yonge St., gives clients a handy cheat sheet so they can communicate with hard of hearing staff. Bosses hope the eatery, which opened last Tuesday, will teach curious customers about the challenges those without hearing face on a daily basis. "They will enjoy learning sign language," owner Anjan Manikumar, who hopes to introduce people to the basics of American Sign Language, told CTV Toronto.
