Lipreading is challenging enough for me as a deaf person. It gives only about 30% of visual information and the rest is a lot of guesswork and filling in the blanks. When a person wears a mask, it’s a nightmare for me as well as for many other deaf and hard of hearing people. It’s difficult even for those who wear hearing devices.
