Communication is more than just what we say.
Masks - They do just that, they mask our facial expressions, i.e. the movement of our lips and jaw, and the curves of our mouth with the rise in our cheeks, that signifies a word or a smile. Not being able to read lips can lead to frustration for sure but also add to the feeling of isolation, due to the added challenges of communication, during this pandemic. Innovation helps all of us navigate these troubling times and this article speaks of a wonderful innovation. This article also informs that in Canada an estimated 3.2 million people are considered hard of hearing and 357,000 are deaf. The chances of encountering someone with a hearing problem are different for all of us. Having a mask that allows others to see your expressions and words, will welcome a more effective and enjoyable conversation, for all.
