I am not sure how they would do that but it is a good idea. Movement catches the attention best, even for hearing people. I learned that in my cognitive psychology class.

Your idea reminds me of how on the swim team we would get a loud beep at the start, but my friend Chelsea was deaf so it didnt work the same for her. The machine that made the beep for the rest of us also had a bright light on top that would flash at the start, and since light travels faster than sound Chelsea would get a tiny headstart! lol not really, the difference is microseconds.

That's an interesting suggestion. I'm not sure how Ganz would make it work though.

My cousin played football in college, and there was a player who was deaf with him on the offensive line. If the Quarterback called a change in play, that guy couldn't hear it. So, they worked out a system where my cousin, who was the Center, would make a hand signal before he hiked the ball. That way, everyone (hopefully) knew what play to run.

Hi!!! For the longest time my computer did not have any sound. So all of my Webbies were non hearing. I could not hear any sounds. I managed to look for movements to give me a clue that there was a leprechaun in the room. (for example)

There are many people with computers with no sound.

Excellent idea. Thanks for suggesting this. I am not deaf, but heaing impaired. I can turn the sound up to hear Goober. My family can hear it in the other rooms.

I think it would be a great idea for Ganz to include an aide for deaf people. My grandaughter has hearing aides, without them, she is almost deaf. Ganz needs to be more conciencious of people with special needs.

I think as Ganz evolves there are many things they could do to enhance the site for everyone of varying needs. They've come a long way since the inception of Webkinz, they can only keep improving

I'm sorry to be the burster of bubbles here, but...

A lot of times, I'll have the sound off on my computer, and I can find them just fine.

With Goober, he's standing upright, and he's fairly tall, and he's a giant St. Bernard with a crazy outfit on. Plus, I think he has a little speech bubble above him saying something when he comes into the room.

With Mr. Moo... he doesn't make a sound, actually.

With Dug, like Goober, he's a giant dog with a crazy outfit on. He doesn't make any sound that I know of, either.

And, with the Leprechaun, after he had been in the room for about 30 seconds, he would start dancing around.

Sorry once again to burst your bubble, but I don't really see how you can't see these characters. They are giant, upright Webkinz in crazy outfits. In my opinion, I don't think they need flashing (strobe lights can hurt my eyes sometimes, and I know some people have epilepsy, which means that flashing lights can really do super-bad things to them) or any more movement.

*shields self from negative comments coming my way*
