The test takes almost 20 minute to complete. This project focuses onlip reading and deafness. The question of the online test is: Can you lipread from a 3D animated character as well as from a real person?

I would be very grateful if you could participate or forward this test toanyone who knows how to lip read. It is very difficult to recruitparticipants and that is why I would be very glad if you could help me.This research is done in order to see if we can built a 3D softwareprogramme for deaf children in UK.
