Hi just to say happy deaf awareness week, which I am deaf so people just face me and speak clearly and in well lit place so I can see lip reading. Also don’t mumble or face away when talking. If I’m not sure what you just said, you can write it down or explain clearer. Thank you and happy deaf awareness week

Just about the same here,it's surprising how many people don't look at you when they are speaking.

I used to do joinery works for a lovely man at his house he was deaf with all the shells the germans fired at him
He was a lieutenant colonel and after the war was responsible for starting the Edinburgh military tattoo
He offered to teach me to lip read wish I had taken him up on that would have known then what people were saying about me down the pub lol
