Hey, John!

I'm not versed in the Deafblind world, but about the bit "Would deafblind
people be able to create language" (ignoring all the rest), check this out:
[...] new language was born right here in the Pacific Northwest. It’s
called Protactile, and it was created by a group of DeafBlind people who
prioritize touch.

Also, I've been researching accessibility in the virtual world for a couple
weeks now and I've learned that Deafblind people, as well as blind hearing
people, can interact with computers and cellphones via what is called
braille display <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Refreshable_braille_display>.

Hope it helps.

P.s.: I'm also a programmer, if you want to talk about those technologies
or anything else related to the field, having enough knowledge or not: I
would be totally thrilled to do so.
