A video showing a deaf woman’s trip to a Florida Starbucks is going viral.

When she pulled up to the speaker and started signing, possibly for the person taking the video to interpret, a barista immediately turned on a video screen and started signing back.

The two then communicated completely through sign language, and the woman was able to complete her order.

According to one interview, the barista is not deaf herself, but is fluent in sign language.

Since being uploaded on Tuesday, the video has been viewed over 9.5 million times on Facebook.
