Subject: RE: Tech: How to disable sign language on iplayer?
From Google: '"Deaf and dumb" (or even just "dumb", when applied to deaf people who do not speak) is an archaic term that is considered offensive. Many Deaf people do not use a spoken language, thus they are technically "mute". The word "dumb" has at least an archaic meaning that means "mute".'
