Hello ASL Heroes!!!
You are important to me. I try to read every one of your emails and I respond to
as many as time and circumstances permit.
Since I like to feed
my family I work a full-time "day job" teaching at Sacramento State
University which keeps me incredibly busy taking care of my students and
I get lots of requests from people asking questions or wanting to know
various signs -- so many requests that I really can't answer them all during
the semester. I try to save those sign requests and post the signs during the next break or
during the summer.
The good news though is that there is a strong chance that I've already answered your
question "somewhere" on this site.
If you just want to know how to sign something, visit: http://www.lifeprint.com/search.htm

Why no "voice" phone number listed?
Answer: Because I'm Deaf (well, actually I'm one of those Deaf slash
hard-of-hearing types: 65Db loss).
With amplification I can
muddle through some voiced conversations (depending on if the other person
has a clear, deep voice and no accent) but the fact is I prefer email.
My phone contract has no voice minutes! (From the old days when AT&T provided discounts to Deaf folks via filling out a special form.) Email works great.
It sits there and patiently waits for me and provides a terrific reference
later on. Yes, of course I have and use VP (videophone) but only with
my co-workers, close friends, and family.

Below is the message I am getting. Please let me know when I can access the
Page Not Found
The page you are looking for might have been removed, had its name
changed, or is temporarily unavailable.
First of all I'm happy to do what I can to help.
However -- I need more information to be of assistance.
You state "the site".
What site? I have half a dozen websites.
It helps to know the actual URL (web address) that you can't seem to load.
Plus: Who are you? Sure, at the back of my mind I have some vague
recollection of a "Jane" being in and/or using one of my resources but then
again I've got over 80,000 subscribers to my Youtube channel. Over a
thousand subscribers to my lifeprint.aslu Facebook site, hundreds of
in-person students at Sac State, and several hundred thousand random visitors
to Lifeprint.com each year. I suppose I could go do a search for your email address in
my email archives but would rather not.
I'm not asking for a life story. Just half a sentence indicating who you are
and/or what program or website you are referring to.
I'm going to assume here that you are an ASL.tc subscriber? If so, the Tech
Guru for that site is John Feagans. I handle the "ASL"-related questions --
he handles the web functionality issues. Sure, I'm happy to be cc'ed on
anything related to ASL.tc in case I have some sort of insight or ability to
help out -- but for fastest service on tech issues it is best to contact
For what it is worth, I just went to ASL.tc 20 seconds ago and it loaded
fine into my browser, so there is a small chance that you simply needed to
reload or wait a couple of minutes due to internet traffic.
So, please try the site again and if it "still" won't work for you then
If it is the Lifperint.com site that is giving you issues then, yes,
definitely that is something to contact me about directly.
