Making laundry services more accessible: Auslan video now available

Laundry Lady is all about ‘taking a load off your mind’ and making the customer experience as stress-free and easy as possible.

With nearly 20,000* Australians using Auslan to communicate every day, the mobile laundry service has released a brand new Auslan video, so members of the Deaf and hard of hearing community can better access its services online.

“We have liaised with members of the Deaf community and enlisted the help of an accredited Auslan interpreter in making this video,” Laundry Lady CEO Susan Toft says.

“We understand that Auslan and English are not interchangeable and hope this video will assist our valued customers in accessing our online material and when booking services.”

The video features Auslan interpreter Mikey Webb, who is known for his work with Auslan Stage Left, and you may recognise him from daily COVID updates from the Queensland Government in 2021 and 2022.

Mikey Webb has interpreted for bands like The Rubens, Peking Duck, and Midnight Oil.
