What is Lip-Reading?
Lip-reading, or speechreading, is a technique of understanding speech by visually interpreting the movements of the lips, face and tongue when normal sound is not available. It relies also on information provided by the context, knowledge of the language, and any residual hearing.
Although most commonly used by deaf and hard-of-hearing people, most people with normal hearing process some speech information from sight of the moving mouth. Start by watching the video above!
