Hello everyone! I’m Jojo I. Esposa Jr. so I’m fondly called by my nickname Jojo. My user name in Wikipedia is Jomanila. I was born and raised in Manila, Philippines hence the nick Jomanila. But I use jojomccid here in blog in order to promote our school MCCID College. I am a registered sign language interpreter in our country. I have been signing for the deaf since 1992. I am a strong advocate of Filipino Sign Language and deaf culture.
I have created an article in 1996 entitled Love for the language means Love for the People – A Focus on Deaf Culture based on my personal experiences. This link is still alive and hosted by Tripod.com.
I am currently the Training Director of Manila Christian Computer Institute for the Deaf College of Technology. I am also the first president of Philippine Web Accessibility Group, an advocacy group that teaches and promotes Web accessibility in the Philippines as a method of making information accessible to all including persons with disabilities (PWD). I am also a web designer and the only Filipino member of Guild of Accessible Web Designers and a member of Web Standards Group. I have also contributed articles in web accessibility in Web Standards Group, Closed captioning on the Internet and Benefits of Accessible Websites.
I have authored the first reference book in my entire life just last 2007. It’s entitled “Basic Web Accessibility Guide for Filipinos.” I have also contributed a few articles in Wikipedia.
Here are a few sites that I created and submitted to w3csites.com:
I may be a hearing person but I have grown to love the Deaf people and their quaint intricacies. This I believe is my speckle contribution within the huge dot of life. 🙂
