It never fails, folks.
I tell people I am Deaf, and sooner or later someone will respond by asking if I can read lips.
Many people assume that I am a crack-shot lipreader.
Wellllll….yes and no.
I am a skilled lipreader. But even the best of us lipreaders can’t understand everything, and we will make mistakes.
Here’s a video that illustrates some of the problems of trying to understand lipreading. It’s one lipreader’s hilarious take on trying to comprehend a football game on television.
Although I do believe they will automatically come on when you click the video, do make sure that the captions are on…click the “cc” button at the bottom of the video and make sure it is set to English – NOT the autocaption!
Enjoy it folks…seriously, this IS what it looks like they are saying!
