deaf person 🧏

Talk about the concerns of the hearing-empaired with the Deaf Person emoji. This emoji features a gender-neutral person signing the word “deaf,” in American sign language. He or she is doing this by pointing to their ear with their index finger. This emoji represents people who can’t hear or have hearing problems.

The Deaf emoji, as it is sometimes called, is often used to tell someone that they are deaf or hard of hearing. It can also be used to let someone know that the person they will be speaking to is deaf. Most of the time, this symbol appears besides one or two sign language emoji.

For instance, when combined with the Raised Hand emoji, the Deaf Person emoji can indicate that someone will need to communicate with them using sign emoji. You can also pair it with the Ear With Hearing Aid emoji to show you have a hearing aid, or you are thinking of getting one.

Over the years, sign language has developed a reputation as one of the richest, most expressive forms of communication, and now a part of it lives within the world of the emoji! The emoji world is filled with different types of sign language that have turned into sign emoji.

In fact, some of them are so popular, and are used so often, people forget that they originally came from sign language. Remember the I Love You emoji and the Thumbs Up emoji? They started as sign language symbols and are now sign language emojis.

🧏 Deaf Person is a fully-qualified emoji as part of Unicode 12.0 which was introduced in 2019.
