Seeing and Hearing Speech
Seeing and Hearing Speech: Lessons in Lipreading and Listening allows people to train and practice lip-reading at their own pace and at home. This new interactive CD-ROM from Sensimetrics Corporation contains carefully planned lessons that help people combine what they see with what they hear to understand speech better.
User chooses presentation conditions: Auditory-Visual, Auditory Only, and Visual Only. Speech samples can be repeated, even in slow motion if needed. Background noise and intensity level can be chosen by the user. Options include party, factory, or traffic noise, as well as calypso and jazz music. Every lesson can be used in either practice or test mode. Test results are automatically stored for individual users.
The lessons are arranged in four groups, each emphasizing different aspects of auditory-visual speech understanding: (a) Vowels, (b) Consonants, (c) Stress, Intonation and Length, and (d) Everyday Communication. The eleven talkers in Seeing and Hearing Speech illustrate the variety of speaking styles that make some easier to lipread than others. Order online from www.seeingspeech.com.
Thank you for making me feel normal again. The new hearing aid brings out the residual hearing and makes me feel whole again.
If you enjoy people and want to hear what they say, get an appointment with Total Hearing Care.
Total Hearing Care could not have been more kind and understanding. Everything they said came true, and I do thank them over and over again!!
In the 40 years that I have been wearing hearing aids, nowhere (and we have lived from coast to coast and border to border) have we found the caring kind of service Total Hearing Care has given me!
