Thursday afternoon

Mrs. Daughter: "Thank you for seeing Mom today. She's blind, and hard of hearing, so getting through to her can be difficult."

Dr. Grumpy: "How do you communicate with her?"

Mrs. Daughter: "She speaks Braille."

I speak Braille, too.
We are a small, but gifted group.

Is that like reading lips? But with your hands?

In the service I worked with guys who spoke Morse code. When they did not want others hearing they'd start off "dit dit dot...ditty ditty..." So annoying.

I was once told "Now honey you know you have to speak up for the hard of hearing. They only speak braille."

I found a tip on internet once (for patients who don't have hearing aids): plug a stethoscope into the patient's ears and speak into the diaphragm.

It works!

Some deafblind people carry a "communication book" which has words/phrases in both print and Braille, so that the person can point out phrases to others, and vice versa.

Somehow I don't think that is what was meant here.
