Auslan interpreters were especially absent at the last press conferences in NSW, and for the new one Prime Minister Dominic Perrottet will have questions about accessibility for the hearing impaired as the state begins reopening.

Human rights lawyers voiced their concern after there were no visible sign language interpreters on October 10 and 11 when Perrottet made pubs announcements to celebrate that NSW got out of lock for the completely annoyed people.

Signatories have been used as main characters in their work during the pandemic, helping to convey vital health information to the Deaf community.

It’s so damn it. We had to work hard for accessibility. There is a Facebook page, Auslan Media Access, which shows how frustrating & can be with unreliable live subtitles and why it is so important to have interpreters. Accessibility is not optional, it is a human right.

The NSW Prime Minister’s Office confirmed to Junkee that the presence of foreign interpreters will be reduced if the lockdown restrictions are lifted. « As NSW returns to a more normal environment and emerges from COVID-19, there will be a number of media events, some of which may include the services of foreign interpreters and some of which may not. »

Interpreters will continue to be present at events , who are coordinated by NSW Health for public health updates or with the chief health officer or alternate present, they said.

NSW Health had been working with the Deaf Society for the past few months to provide Auslan interpreters to deliver. The Deaf Society was unable to comment during the transition period, but emphasized to Junkee the importance of their employees in disseminating important information.
