CUED SPEECH EUROPA
Our project aims to promote Cued Speech, a very simple technique for the hearing impaired to use with their families, friends, trainers, and teachers. It is a lip-reading accompaniment technique allowing them to understand spoken language, when used by the majority of people around them.
Its French adaptation uses 5 positions around the face to represent 16 sounds-vowels and 8 configurations of the hand representing 21 sounds-consonants. These gestures accompany lip-reading, allowing for the hearing-impaired person to better visualize what their interlocutor is saying.
