People that are either deaf or hard of hearing rely on reading lips to understand what is being said to them. The tongue plays in important role in distinguishing many vowels and consonants to help a deaf person have a conversation. A person that is hard of hearing also uses face motion to detect the words being said. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n1jLkYyODsc

I also wrote about this. I don't think people recognize how hard lip reading really is. People speak with accents, speak fast, and cover their mouths some times when speaking. Not everyone does sign language so some deaf people feel that it is in their best interest to learn to read lips. But as stated, it is not as easy as everyone may think!ReplyDelete
Relying heavily on lip reading while being deaf must not be easy. I know I'm awful at reading lips so I cannot imagine how difficult relying on just lip reading is. I feel like face motion and hand gestures can definitely aid a deaf or hard of hearing individual, but it still must be tough!
hey great clip!I think this chapter did a great job explaining how important lip reading is to the deaf community. its a real talent to be able to do what they do, defiantly tough.ReplyDelete
Great post! Lip reading was a very interesting topic to include that our book covered. Lip reading can be performed by anyone, but you make a great point that the deaf or hard of hearing rely on this to commutate with others. I also enjoyed reading about Sue Thomas who worked for the FBI and her experience with lip reading.ReplyDelete
