A man asked:

Is there anywhere on the web, or a resource that you could direct me to, where I can learn to improve my lip reading skills?

The real secret to becoming better at speechreading (lip reading is the older term) is to always “stare” at the person to whom you are talking. In other words, practice, practice, practice. I’ve been doing this all my life. That’s how I
learned.

You may find it helpful to read my article on speechreading. However, if you want to really speed things up, there is an excellent speechreading CD available to help you improve your speechreading skills.
