seasons of double trouble

this got me thinking, with the covid-19 pandemic so much has been going on. meeting are done on zoom and so much more online. sometimes I really feel I get to miss a lot not being able to connect for zoom meetings because of one reason or the other. either we are facing prolonged blackouts for days , or its the internet bandwidth that is very limited resulting to very poor network or its just the continues gunshots in our city that scares the hell out of you . Really I miss the face-to-face meetings. I get to wander how persons with hearing impairment get to participate in zoom meetings???

Thank you for sharing.

Hello, Carine,

Face-to-face interaction is better than Zoom meetings. Your feelings are valid, dear. Blackouts and intermittent connections are frustrating! For people with hearing impairments, World Pulse transcribe to them so they can follow by reading the chat messages. Sis Arrey-Echi wrote about it.

Thank you for your concern, dear. I hope this confinement and lockdown be over soon. Have a great week a ahead!
