    This one is good. As a whole it has a good message.

    How do you find all these videos Sid?

    These videos are some materials for my sign language interpreter students.

    A close friend of mine (we went to high school together) is deaf. He didn't have any problems understanding me though, probably because he's insanely good at lip reading. I guess being around him helped me a little, I can somewhat figure out what people are saying without having to hear them...

    But from the time I knew him he had hearing aids, and eventually he went for a surgery to get hearing implants so eventually he could pretty much hear us. So I never got to learn sign language from him. I've always wanted to though...it's just mind-boggling... how do I sync my thoughts with my hands?

    Javier, I can do lip reading too, and a lot of deafs and hard of hearing persons too, but it's never 100% understandable, and we have some issues like demonstrate in the video (I hate thin lips and mustaches).

    I learned sign language when I was a child so I prefer signing for lip reading, but when I'm alone (without any signer) and I need talk to a person I use lip reading, he/she must repeat something that I don't understand often.

    The Cochlear Implant is a big help for some deafs but not for all. The big issue is: the implated person must have hearing training for understand the sounds, differenciate noises, besides the fact that he/she needs beware with swimming, electricity, etc...

    Hey, Javier, how do you sync your thoughts with your lips and vocal cords? The brain uses the same area, the parietal love, for communicate, since the body uses muscles (lips or hands). The difference is in reception. The hearing people uses the temporal lobe (near ears, that controls auditory processing and olfaction) and deaf people, and hearing signers too, uses the occiptal lobe (back lobe, that controls vision).

    Hmm... I never thought of it that way. That makes sense. I guess with practice you can sign fast? Cause everyone I've seen signing do it so fast.

    The implants helped my buddy alot but he suffered a great deal after the surgery. The recovery took really long, and he'd get splitting headaches and interference and stuff but all that was ironed out in time...he says he has no regrets about going through with it.
