Are clear masks the way to clearer communication? The deaf community isn’t so sure.

  • Yahoo! article by Abby Haglage, explaining that clear face masks may not be the panacea we think it is for the deaf community. The masks can fog up, reducing visibility – and even if that is put aside, lip reading is only about 30% effective. Many advocates are encouraging people to learn some BSL (British Sign Language) instead. However, Abby acknowledges that clear masks are a step in the right direction.
