The Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) 1995, promotes civil rights for disabled people and protects disabled people from discrimination. It now gives disabled people rights in the areas of employment, education, access to goods, facilities and services. British Sign Language (BSL) is used in preference by 70,000 Deaf and hard of hearing people in the UK. BSL is a recognised language with its own grammar, syntax and structure and therefore it is impossible for Deaf people to rely on lip-reading as a form of communication. BSL users need interpreters to access services to aid smooth communication channels.
