Seeing at the Speed of Sound
Stanford Magazine

Amazing piece! Actually when I first ran into this story, I felt like Rachel and myself have known each other for a while. To be more accurate, it’s like she was able to present in words the most inner feelings or thoughts that oftentimes I find hard to place in the right context for any hearing peer.

In English or Spanish, when it comes to explain what lip-reading is and how I do it, it’s always been my explanation to whoever ask, that is just natural, it’s my normal being; like for anyone is natural to learn to walk or crawl, so it’s a natural instinct to just grasp onto the information that I can see.

Thank you for this essay. It has inspired me to write my own stories.
