ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (WTLV/NBC News Channel) — A Starbucks drive-thru in Florida is getting attention for accepting orders with American Sign Language.
Rebecca King captured her recent experience at a St. Augustine Starbucks on her cell phone.
The barista, realizing King was hearing impaired, turned on the screen so she could communicate with her.
King then placed her order with a barista on the screen using sign language.
King was so excited that she put it on Facebook, and the video has now been viewed by over a million people.
King says it’s a big deal for the deaf community, making it easier for those with hearing impairments to place their orders at the drive-thru.
