Disease relevance of Lipreading

  • The difference score on the discourse tracking task, representing the auditory advantage over performance with lipreading alone, related substantively to a combination of variables including type of unit worn (Sigma versus Alpha), nature of deafness (progressive versus sudden), and etiology (meningitis versus nonmeningitis) [1].

Psychiatry related information on Lipreading

  • Skilled speechreading was also associated with activations and deactivations in other brain regions, suggesting that individual differences ref lect the efficiency of a circuit linking sensory, perceptual, memory, cognitive, and linguistic processes rather than the operation of a single component process [2].

High impact information on Lipreading

  • Subtractions of the different sets of images showed that lipreading primarily activated the STG/STS [3].
  • Consonant recognition was assessed under four test conditions, each presented at an input level of 50 dB SPL: unaided listening without speechreading (baseline), aided listening without speechreading, unaided listening with speechreading, and aided listening with speechreading [4].
  • Similarly, mean WIPI score for the combination of Tickle Talker, lipreading, and hearing aids (TLA) increased by 6% as compared with combined lipreading and hearing aid (LA) scores [5].
  • Four studies are reported on the design of tactile aids to lipreading conducted at Central Institute for the Deaf, St [6].
  • METHODS: Perception is evaluated using the Test for the Evaluation of Voice Perception and Production (TEPP) and concerns closed- and open-set word and sentence perception without lip-reading [7].

Associations of Lipreading with chemical compounds

  • In three experiments the roles of script, basic and low-level contexts in lipreading (Abbott et al., 1985) were studied [8].

Gene context of Lipreading

  • The Mark 2 aid was shown to give improved results over the Mark 1 aid in transmitting voice intonation, but gave no help in an isolated word lipreading test [9].
  • The best predictors of lipreading ability were successful performance on the Rod and Frame Test and high increases in skin conductance from pre-task to task situation [10].
  • All subjects were administered the Rod and Frame Test, Craig Lipreading Inventory, and skin conductance measures under two conditions (pre-task and task) [10].
  • Lip-reading/speech-reading (LRD/SPR) for adults. A plea for individual assessment to decide upon appropriate method of assistance [11].
  • Lipreading performance was nearly perfect for /p/, /f/, /w/, /theta/ and /u/. Lipreading performance on /t/, /k/, /ch/, /s/, /i/ and /ae/ depended on context [12].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Lipreading

  • The open set tests using phonetically balanced words and Central Institute for the Deaf everyday sentences showed that for electrical stimulation alone and electrical stimulation combined with lipreading, the results with the F0-F2 speech processor were all significantly better than with the F0 processor [13].
  • The results are discussed with respect to how information from facial expressions is integrated with the information given by the lip movements in visual speechreading, and also with respect to general models of face-processing (i.e., Bruce & Young, 1986; Young & Bruce, 1991) [14].
