Practice your lipreading skills online

If you have attended lipreading classes in the past and would like to practice your skills in a stress free manner, then this is perfect site for you. Stories for Lipreading is a newly launched free website offering a variety of video clips of short stories being read aloud into camera by trained lip reading teachers.

Each video is provided with a context document containing the key words and phrases you will encounter while lip reading the speaker, as well as a full transcript to check your understanding afterwards. Many of the stories featured have been specially written for the site and new stories will be added regularly.

Opportunities to practice lipreading skills at your own pace in everyday life are unfortunately rare, and with very few online resources devoted to providing practice material, this website will be invaluable to those seeking to keep their abilities sharp. The site is ideal for experienced lipreaders, offering the chance to practice with longer phrases and but also offering something life does not; the ability to rewind and play again as often as you like!

We encourage our visitors to check this site out at
