Read My Lips

Visual communication for the hard of hearing coverVisual Communication for the Hard of Hearing
O’Neill and Oyer

Submitter: This is a 1961 book about lip reading. It offers an interesting history on the topic in one chapter. It was pretty fascinating. But the other chapters are talking about resources you could get to help with the teaching of lip reading. Being over 50 years old, I would think it would be hard to find those listed books and films. If you even wanted too?

Holly: Old, boring, and irrelevant. That’s a trifecta for weeding. I sincerely hope this was found in a university library (from which it should still probably be weeded…), but WorldCat shows holdings in some public libraries and community colleges too. I can’t even begin to imagine why.

  1. Am I the only one who sat here making the sounds depicted and trying to see if my mouth made the same shape?

  2. The mouths on the two pages look nearly all the same to me. I say mouths because it looks like they don’t have any lips. 🙂
