This third of three volumes, presents the reader with information on the application of vocal emotions in the daily interaction with technology and whether the vocal emotions are universal or culture specific. This volume presents noteworthy data on cross-cultural vocal emotions and how the emerging silicon technology struggles to provide unbiased and accurate renditions of instruments, computers, systems and products that will interact properly with vocally transmitted emotions. The author discusses the problems and challenges in creating virtual emotional anthropomorphismic creatures, how automatic recognition of vocal emotions by machines is achieved, and the effects of future technology or our day-to-day “emotional” life.

 How does Deaf culture fit into education, psychology, cultural studies, technology and the arts? Deaf Culture: Exploring Deaf Communities in the United States addresses this through both theoretical and practical information. With the recognition of American Sign Language (ASL) as a bona fide language, the perception of Deaf people has evolved into the recognition of a vibrant Deaf culture centered around the use of signed languages and the communities of Deaf people.

This text also describes how rapid advances in technology, including the Internet as well as new visual and auditory technologies, have not only created opportunities for Deaf people to influence how technology can be used, but additionally has become a powerful force in influencing the behavior of Deaf individuals within diverse national and international societies. This has created opportunities for incorporating diversity and international perspectives into Deaf culture. Within each chapter are multiple vignettes, examples, pictures, and stories to enhance content interest for readers and facilitate instructor teaching. Theories are introduced and explained in a practical and reader-friendly manner to ensure understanding, and clear examples are provided to illustrate concepts.

In addition, students of American Sign Language and Deaf studies will find an introduction to possible opportunities for professional and informal involvement with ASL/Deaf culture children and adults. Deaf Culture fills a unique niche as an introductory text that is accessible and straightforward for those beginning their studies of the Deaf-World.
