One Beartooth device failed before this EVA, so the (deaf) CGA was forced to take his writable LCD tablet along for communication. The stylus went missing at the beginning of the EVA. For the duration of this EVA, we made do with hand gestures and the note app on our phones to communicate with the CGA. Fortunately, his stylus was recovered at the end of this EVA. We will continue to troubleshoot the Beartooth issue.
