The purpose of this study was to find out whether deafened adults can take advantage of the extra information in speechreading given by the vibrational and motional patterns picked up by placing a hand on a speaker's throat and shoulder, and how valuable this tactile supplement is as a support system for speechreading. We have named this(More)
The present study aimed at studying compensatory cognitive functions in the profoundly hearing-impaired. Bransford & Franks' (1971) linguistic abstraction paradigm was employed as a means of testing the hypothesis that the profoundly hearing-impaired engage in a general meaning-abstraction strategy not necessary for the normal-hearing. Twenty profoundly(More)
The present study investigated speechreading performance as a function of TV versus real-life presentation. List length and type of material was also manipulated as well as degree of hearing handicap: normally hearing subjects, moderately impaired subjects and profoundly hearing-impaired subjects. The results showed that type of group and presentation(More)
Twelve deaf and 12 normally hearing subjects participated in the present study. The deaf subjects, who had acquired their handicap as adults, exhibited superior recall performance for recency items (short-term memory items) of a list of visually presented words compared to the normal group. Current models of memory and modality effects were unable to handle(More)
