Lip SpeakersLipspeakers

Lip-speakers work with people who prefer to communicate through lip-reading and speech. Both Deaf and hearing people can use lip-speakers to help them communicate with each other.

What do lip-speakers do?

Lip-speakers repeat what is said without using their voice, so that you can lip-read them easily. They produce the shape of words clearly, with the flow, rhythm and phrasing of speech. They use natural gestures and facial expressions to help you follow what is being said.

Booking a lip-speaker

Your lip-speaker will need a break about every 30 minutes. For assignments that are more than two hours long, you should book two lip-speakers.
