Lip reading allows you to “listen” to a speaker by watching the speaker’s face to figure out their speech patterns, movements, gestures and expressions. Often called “a third ear,” lip reading goes beyond simply reading the lips of a speaker to decipher individual words. Some also refer to it as Speech Reading.
Learning to lip-read involves developing and practicing certain skills that can make the process much easier and more effective.
Did you know that sentences are easier to lipread than individual words and long words are easier to lipread than short words?
