The Deafness Forum Australia has developed a first for Australia – an online learning course called Read Our Lips Australia. The online course, made possible through funding from the federal government, is designed to improve lip-reading ability. Identifying and understanding lip movements is a skill that can be improved with regular practice, time and patience. Created by experienced lip-reading instructors, users are guided through online modules at their own pace to identify key mouth movements. By improving their understanding of what someone is saying in different environments and contexts, Read Our Lips Australia assists users to fill in the blanks when they cannot understand speech by listening alone.
