Lipreading Practice

Evelyn Glennie contends that deafness is largely misunderstood by the public. She claims to have taught herself to hear with parts of her body other than her ears. In response to inaccurate reporting by the media, Evelyn Glennie published "Hearing Essay" in which she discusses her condition.

Who is the site for?

Hello I’m Gloria McGregor.

This site is for hard of hearing people who have difficulties in communicating in a variety of situations because of their hearing loss.
This may occur in everyday work, play or family activities;

  • at social functions
  • when attending lectures, meetings or theatres
  • in restaurants and other dining out places
  • when watching the TV or films
  • and in other situations.

Lipreading skills may enhance our ability to make sense of what we hear whether we wear hearing aids or not.

It is hoped that anybody who is interested in lipreading will find something interesting and useful here.
