    wow Brent, your work is amazing! thank you so much for sharing this tutorial. however, since i am hearing impaired, it is very difficult for me to follow what you are saying– i did follow your facebook post and did not see any specifically detailed written instructions, like a full translation of your video speech to a readable form. Do you post that anywhere? Please let me know, i d be super greatful!
