Upgraded news programs are sign of the times

By Hu Min

Two Shanghai news programs have introduced sign language interpretation for the benefit of the hearing impaired.

The two programs are aired on Dragon TV and Shanghai Television.

The Shanghai Disabled Persons' Federation is providing the interpreters.

"Sign language is like the mother tongue for people with hearing impairment," said Kou Chenzhu, who joined in the team three years ago. "The move helps them obtain fresh news information just like other people."
