Hi,

I'm currently in school for computer forensics and am really excited about getting my degree. I haven't heard a lot of information about hard-of-hearing/deaf people in this field, if it is an example of an ideal career choice, for instance. Does anyone have any input? I know that this field can potentially require appearance in court to assist with cases/give testimony, but accommodations are available, I assume... For a deaf person in this scenario, would their superior be able to represent them on the stand instead? Would disability diminish credibility (ie. misunderstanding questions and/or delay in answering questions due to hearing impairment)?

If anyone knows someone who has a hearing impairment who excelled in this field, or even has any advice for someone in that boat, please share.

Computers are a strength of mine, and criminal investigation has always been an interest, I am determined not to allow my hearing disability to hinder my ability to succeed, but I would like to have an idea as to what obstacles I could potentially be up against, and resolutions.

I think your disability would only be a disadvantage if you were reviewing multimedia files that contained relevant audio. Other than that it should be immaterial. In court you would likely be assigned someone that converses in ASL, it would be unlikely that your supervisor would testify for you.

I'm sorry, I didn't specify my method of communication. I speak just fine, but I do have difficulty hearing when being talked to.

And potential audio would definitely be an obstacle.

I would say a minor obstacle especially if you are in network forensics or similar. That is not to say you will not have to convince a prospective employer, but I am guessing it will not be the first or last time you have had to prove yourself.

YOU MIGHT WANT TO CHECK OUT THE DEFENSE INTELLIGENCE AGENCY (DIA). THEY GREATLY ENCOURAGE INDIVIDUALS WITH HANDICAPS TO APPLY AND HAVE ALL KINDS OF INTERNSHIPS, TUITION PAYMENT PROGRAMS (WILL MAKE PARENTS JUMP FOR JOY), AND MASTERS PROGRAMS. NOW THEY ARE IN THE INTELLIGENCE FIELD, BUT THEY USE A LOT OF DIFFERENT DISCIPLINES (INCLUDING THE BIO SCIENCES). THEY SEEM MORE INTERESTED THAT YOU COULD PASS A BACKGROUND AND URINE TEST THAN ANYTHING ELSE. YOU MUST BE A U.S. CITIZEN. I'D GO FOR IT.
