Could you speak and lipead?
 
I cannot speak or lipead. Zip-zero.

P.S. I apologize for deleting my other thread of the same topic because I did not realize I posted it without poll nor did I realize the thread was already created. I kinda screwed up because I'm still very new to this forum. It has more complex features that I have to get used to.

I can speak very well, and lipread well. Lipreading goes a thousand times better with my CI. I'm still at the beginning stages of my journey, so lipreading is still important.

:boink: :laugh2:

Lipreading is important? Not until you lose all of your vision caused by injury/accident, aging, or eye disease. :)

Amby 06-01-2003 12:01 PM

I can do both. I can catch about 90-95% of what the person says when Im lipreading.. when I speak, I speak clearly enough for those that know me well, but for those that don't, sometimes it's difficult.

Suppose I said, "Did you see my cat?"

Would you know if it was cat, hat, bat, date, gate, kite, or rat.

MilitaryGirl83 06-03-2003 04:22 PM

:werd: I don't care about my speech either.. I prefer ASL.

CatoCooper13 06-18-2003 10:55 PM

Hi, I can talk and lip read... I lipread perhaps 70% of the time as it depends on who I am talking with and how fast the person's talking, etc. I think I could do better but just can't be bothered cos I'm Deaf. :P

ChelEler 06-19-2003 09:23 AM

I'm profound deaf, and I lipread and speak well enough to carry on a conversation with family and friends who know me so well. With strangers, that's different. I often repeat after what he/she said to make sure that I get it right to avoid any misunderstanding. :thumb: (I don't wear any hearing aids nor any devices.)

Ziusudra 07-12-2003 01:58 AM

I can both speak and lip read relatively well I think. I'm understood pretty well, and my lipreading skills aren't bad, it depends on whether the person has a beard, or if it's dark and those sort of things. But in good conditions, I lip read well enough.

Mizzou 09-15-2003 04:57 PM

Vote for Can Lipread.... as kid, I had Oral and Hearing. but it been gone since I signs LOT than talking. :D

deafdyke 09-16-2003 01:50 PM

can speechread and talk pretty well. Everyone says I have a VERY "deaf"/hoh voice and I have been asked several times if I am from the UK. I have a LOT of trouble with modulating my voice, especially when I am wicked tired. Also have trouble with articulating some words. It's hard for me to remember how to pronounce some words so I'll pronounce the words phoneticlly.

Oddball 09-16-2003 08:15 PM

Well, I am proud to admit that I am an oral failure because I tried hard to pronounce words for people to understand me, but it was difficult for me. I had been in speech therapy from age of three through high school years. Speech therapy is not effective for me at all. Instead, I rather to use sign language to form communication with people. I have to educate hearing people about Deaf language and culture.... it is so weary. ASL is like foreign language to the people. Shrugs.

Ziusudra 09-17-2003 10:07 AM

It depends on the individual I think and their enthusiasm for learning. I myself find it really easy to lipread sometimes and sometimes I don't. It just depends. I can hear some words sometimes, and I'm teaching my boyfriend to learn sign so if I don't understand what he's saying, he can just sign it out or write it down. I usually like to lipread/talk so writing down things isn't too much of a hassle.
