3 - Will See Sound Live help me learn speak fluently?
See Sound Live is currently under development. Initial experience has been very encouraging. Safety profile is well established. We feel that if you try using See Sound Live, you should be able to get early results in speech development that will encourage you to try more. More you practice, better you will get at it. We still don't know how long you will need to practice to get optimal outcomes but based on what is known of the science so far, we have recommended several levels and modules and encourage you to progress up these modules one by one.
As you develop the ability to speak orally, the new found vocabulary will come very handy when combined with sign language to communicate.
However, you must consult your Doctor / Teachers / Therapists / Rehabilitation experts before deciding on using See Sound Live.
4 - What is the ideal age for See Sound Live?
See Sound Live is ideal for a school going deaf child aged 5 years and more who relies entirely on sign language and is unable to develop speech with the help of hearing aids or cochlear implantation. Higher age is no barrier for using See Sound Live since See Sound Live uses your brain's visual processing skills to develop speech. With age, the brains visual processing skills in children relying on sign language only gets better.
