  1. not one hundred percent, but i think it is amazing grace. As i do not know sign language i was going off of their lips.

  2. I think that this is to be funny, the deaf do have a sense of humor so I can see that if this was meant to be funny how it is.

  3. I thought this was American and they were talking about schedules, but I thought maybe the rest was just new stuff I'd never seen before.

  4. This is not ASL. This is International Sign. I'm sure perhaps the FR8 team can make the subtitles for this video 🙂

  5. No, its not meant to be funny, its meant to show what the benefits actually are, and how we need to keep Sign Language thriving!

  6. It's International Sign Language, not ASL. I understand it as I've learned some International Sign Language. It's also poetic form. Can't be translated 100% into English captioning. It's not making fun of hearing people, it's celebrating use of sign language!

  7. Hi! This vid isn't meant to be non-inclusive. do you want a transcript? I can post an approximation. This isn't in ASL but is clear enough to get the gist. reply back if really want to know content.

  8. The irony. Hearing people who do not know Sign Language upset over the lack (or know how to click the CC button) of automatic subtitles. Welcome to the Deaf experience.

  9. I am an American hearing person living in Japan. Open-minded and currently learning ASL and JSL (Japanese sign language) here in Japan. ASL and JSL learning are connecting me with wonderful people from all over that I wouldn't (maybe couldn't) communicate with otherwise…just like the signers in the video are saying! Good video and a beautiful message.
    Thank you!
