Deaf woman's video of order at Starbucks goes viral


Starbucks! This is what I'm talking about! ❤️Share it away! We can change the world! :)

A video of a new technology at one Florida Starbucks is going viral -- and it is awesome!

The video was posted on Facebook by Rebecca King, who uses sign language to place her order!

And guess what, the barista, Katie Wyble, signs back through a two-way video screen!

Wyble told Fox 30 Action News Jax she's had a "passion for sign language since I first saw a teacher use it when I was in preschool."

King's video of the encounter went viral  with more than three million views and 100,000 shares.

"Starbucks! This is what I'm talking about! ❤ Share it away! We can change the world!" King wrote as the caption.

“I think more people need to know about what we’re doing because it moves customer service to a whole new level,” Wyble said. “I hope it helps make more people aware of what they can to do serve others in their communities.”
