In Taiwan — there is a Deaf woman who works as a TV news anchor. Her name is Sue Wang (45). She works for a public, government-funded TV program that airs 8-8:30 am daily. She signs out the news by reading a teleprompter — using the same content as what hearing anchors use.

NOTE:  "The deaf culture in Taiwan was rarely respected by common people. After Taipei City was elected to be the organizer of the 2009 Deaflympics, and a success of '2007 World Deaf Swimming Championship', this (deaf) culture is now progressively respected around the world. I hope this game can be a great platform to make this known by more and more people with deaf athletes' participation." Sue Wang (Spokeswoman of 2007 Taipei Run Up and Sign Language Anchor of Public Television Service) remarked.


The Chinese-language media in Taiwan has covered this story about Sue Wang, but not one English language newspaper has covered it. I am now thinking to try to find a reporter outside Taiwan to tell her story to the BBC or US media or anywhere in English speaking land, with video of one of her If you know someone who might want to do a story, even a short article but with a link to a TV news video showing Sue in action. It should be worldwide news because as far as I know, Sue is the only news anchor who is deaf in the world with such an animated unique style of signing. Even though I cannot understand sign language, it is a pleasurre to watch her every morning on the local public TV station here at 8 am. I found her by accident one day while channel surfing a few months ago and I was hooked. I want the whole world to know about her now, outside Taiwan. Her message is a very important one.


KAOHSIUNG BORN AND RAISED: An TV news anchor in Taipei who is deaf and works for a daily TV news program in Taiwan, Mrs. Wang Shiao-su (王曉書), 45, has created a global buzz and a Facebook fan base for her unique, outgoing presentation style. Her English name is Sue.

Wang Shiao-Su [王曉書]


A few years ago, Mrs Wang won an award with two other PTS TV anchors at Sign Language News of  PTS-TV in Taiwan  for their work as anchors in Taiwan at the annual Golden Bell TV Awards show. And here she is receiving a TV award on TV at the 2 minute mark -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A3-zG_oEyzM

Mrs Wang, born in Kaohsiung and working now in Taipei as a news anchor, program host and runway model,  is able to attract so many fans because of her winning personality, her animated and sometimes humorous facial gestures as she is doing her work for the show and her over all happy Taiwanese personality. You have never seen an anchor at a Sign Language News TV show before anywhere in the world who is this good and Sue deserves global recognition.

Taiwan is a small island nation overshadowed by her larger neighbors of Japan and China, but the people of Taiwan are, hands down, the winningest people in Asia. And Mrs Wang is a very good example of what makes Taiwan so great!


Sue comes to work Monday to Wednesday at 6  a.m. to get ready for her live broadcast which airs from 8 a.m. to 8:30 a.m.
She drives to the office by herself. She has a driver's license since people who are deaf can apply for a driver's licenses in Taiwan.



Sue has been working for PTS-TV since 2001. Her "Listening Eye" show began in 2001 and is still running. And she has been an anchor for the Sign Language News show at PTS since 2002 -- over 14 years!

THE PROCESS: To perform her duties as on-air anchor for the show, Sue relies on a very interesting technology that news anchors use all over the world, and in Taiwan too. She reads the news items before the show begins, and she reads them at her desk on her computer in Chinese text, since they will be read by the voice-over in Chinese. Then, familiar with all the news, and after taking notes, and making preparations for the live show, Sue will stand in front of a TelePrompter screen and as the voice-over READS the news item for PTS hearing viewers, Sue will, as anchor, sign the very same news item as an introduction to each particular item. Then she waits for the next news item, and so on, for about 10 to 12 news items each day.

 

Who was Mrs Wang's teachers when she was a young girl? Where did she go to high school?

 

Sue has been an anchor at Sign Language News of  PTS since September 2, 2002. In the beginning, there was a woman who was deaf and knew TSL(Taiwanese sign language) very well and she taught Sue for about 6 months. Also, PTS had a  hearing sign language interpreter help Sue.
The hearing sign language interpreter works with her even now.

 


For elementary school to high school, Sue went to the
Tainan School for The Hearing Impaired. (Now the name is The Affiliated School for Students with Hearing Impairments of National University of Tainan.For college, Sue attended Shih Chien University.

 



In New York City, there is a hearing Amerian Sign Language interpreter [who is not a deaf person] named Lydia Callis and she became famous in New York a few years ago as the sign language interpreter for New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg during the Hurrican Sandy press conferences he gave.

Now in Taiwan, there is an anchor  at Sign Language News in Taipei who works for the PTS-TV [public televison station] named WANG SHIAO-SU, aka Sue Wang, and her work for the TV station (and her work as a model for a top modelling agency in Taiwan) has earned her a large following among Taiwanese fans and admirers who follow her daily newscasts at 8 a.m. three times a week Monday Tuesday and Wednesday and her Facebook page (in Chinese text only at this time).



NEW YORK: American sign language interpreter Lydia Callis became an overnight sensation when she worked with New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg during Superstorm Sandy. Though interpreting vital information for the deaf community, her vibrant nature, strong facial expressions and seemingly dramatic gestures won a large following via social media.
 
TAIPEI: There is an anchor for Sign Language News for the PTS-TV [a Taiwanese public televison station] named WANG SHIAO-SU, and her work for the TV station (and her work as a model for a top modelling agency in Taiwan) has earned her a large following among Taiwanese fans and admirers who follow her daily newscasts at 8 a.m. and her Facebook page (in Chinese text only at this time). Her English name is Sue. She is married and has one child. She is 45 years old.
 
NEW YORK: Lydia Callis, who earned a bachelor's degree in ASL English Interpretation from the National Technical Institute for the Deaf, in Rochester, N.Y., stresses that people who are deaf can do everything hearing people can, they just do not do it through a spoken language.]
 
"I noticed that people have a hard time disconnecting from that," she said. "They really think that they are disabled but they’re not. Especially with today's technologies -- the cell phone has definitely helped big time because you can just write messages in there and communicate through that way.
 
"All in all I think that it shows that hearing people need to try to include people who are deaf more in their daily events and daily life things that they do and even going out and learning the language, because so many people look at it as a disability, that they can’t do something, but they can, and it would just be great to be able to learn the language," she said. "It's a beautiful language that is silent."
 
TAIPEI: Wang Shiao-su was born hearing but when she was three years old, due to a medical emergency and a lack of the proper medicines available in Taiwan at that time, she lost some of her hearing. Sue Wang is now 45 years old, married, with one son, and works as a model, a spokeswoman for various endorsement companies and is a popular PTS anchor Monday to Wednesday on Taiwan's public TV station PTS-TV. She is so popular, everyone in Taiwan knows her name and she has a large following now on her Chinese-language Facebook page. Dozens of videos of her also circulate now via Youtube.

ADDITIONAL INFO FROM THE CHINESE WIKI SITE FOR 王曉書:
 
 

很喜歡看海,但卻很少到東北角,趁著空檔與友人一起到龍洞灣挑一個區塊看看腳下的海景,浪花一朵一朵,海水拍打岩石而濺起的水花,一群精力旺盛的年輕人浮潛,看著這一切,覺得心情平靜愉悅,彷彿五臟六腑被清洗一番,暢快的感覺充斥全身,讓人忘記酷熱又悶燥的夏天。來這兒放鬆的看海浮潛,就是人生ㄧ大享受啦!
