Lipreading and Face Masks
Ask a Question
Anyone else realised just how much they rely on lipreading when speaking to other people? Now that we all wear face masks in public (with a few legitimate exceptions) I struggle to ‘hear’ people.
I sometimes say ‘I can’t hear you because of the face mask’ when really it’s because I used to be able to lipread their lips to correct any misunderstanding I had with the conversation . I wouldn’t say I was deaf or particularly hard of hearing, but still, it’s a struggle.
