Lipreading Resources

As I’ve touched on in previous articles, lipreading is, at best, an art.  One of the most common questions I have been asked by those who are losing their hearing or have loved ones who are is, “Where can I learn?”.  The answer, I believe is not in location but in time.  Your personal experience in navigating communication with hearing loss and your natural abilities will dictate your ability to lipread well. There are, however, some cool tools I have discovered that can test your abilities and give you some practice.  Check these out.
