Lip Speakers

Our Lip Speakers

It can be difficult for a lip reader to follow the flow of conversation when there are many people in a meeting. The provision of a lip speaker gives the lip reader a single person to focus on making it easier to follow what is being said.

Why Use

Lip Speakers?

Whilst some British Sign Language (BSL) users can lip read many cannot, and often words with similar shape patterns can be misunderstood. We recommend the assistance of a BSL interpreter for all clients who use BSL, especially in formal or official settings.

    What is a Lip Speaker?

    A Lip Speaker is a hearing person who has been professionally trained to lip speak. They clearly reproduce the shapes, natural rhythm and stress the speaker uses and use facial expressions, gestures, and finger spelling to accurately convey the speaker’s message to a lip reader.

    The Lip Speaker can also slow the flow of speech whilst keeping its natural rhythm to make it easier to follow and when requested can use their voice, allowing the lip reader to benefit from any residual hearing.
