IMPROVE your unconscious LISTENING and develop ‘conscious’ approaches! How? Forensic Listening strategies develop the constructive use of expansion skills! As we interpret, we often interpret the explicit information only, leaving the details out. By discovering strengths in ‘noticing differently’ – increased empathic VENACULAR understanding occurs. WHILE VOICING, what is the role of intuitive and inferential listening? Answer: Comprehensive communication of the ‘unsaid’ – yet, how do we know what we know? Each of the four types of listening, once recognized, play an important role in building awareness beyond the explicit word spoken, and we move into fluent understanding. As interpreters, we are always reminded that brevity is one of the keys to effective interpreting. What tools do we use to enhance our interpreting of the ASL concept beyond the explicit words? What is the ethical practice of including unsaid information? (or was it ‘unsaid’)? Voice interpreting ASL includes so much more than ‘speaking the words’ – yet in our rush to predict – our limited confidence often distorts the explicit as well as the implicit message. Additionally, what is our internal response to conflict in intuitive listening when the signed words don’t make sense to our interpretation?"
