Jason (a male with short brown hair wears black sunglasses and a short sleeve blue polo shirt) sits in front of a dark grey background and signs into the camera.
Hello. I'm Jason Herbers. I am DeafBlind. I am from Cincinnati, Ohio. I am a DeafBlind interpreter educator at the college level. I use ProTactile American Sign Language, because before I lost my vision I used visual American Sign Language and loved the language, the expression of it, but once I lost my vision I switched to using PTASL and I felt connected to the world again. Everything became clear. I was able to connect with people and follow conversations, and I felt good about that. #WhyISignPTASL
