— Taxi company hires deaf drivers

A taxi company in Seoul is now hiring deaf
drivers. Communication between hearing passengers
and deaf taxi drivers was made possible because

Just regular taxi cabs.

agency moved from one location to another
location. Much of these books were trashed.
It was the deaf leaders of the young
generation that decided to do the trashing.
A sad shame!
