deaf-death.jpg

hey /b/

here's the thing. I was born profoundly deaf, but I got a cochlear implant at 18 months. I have hearing parents, and I've been mainstreamed (in hearing schools) for my entire life.

Every so often, I meet someone who seems to not realize I have hearing loss and when I tell them I'm deaf, they always go "oh wow! I never would've known!". But I know some people who said they knew it the moment I opened my mouth.

So, I'm curious. How deaf is my accent? Give me something to record and I'll upload it to Vocaroo and share it with you guys.

I notice it, but it isn't bad. You kind of sound like when a Dutch person speaks English.

are you from ireland?

You have a noticeable lisp and small slur.
>>
>>571379627
Just barely 18! (birthday was August 15th)
>>
>>571377897
You speak with a bit of a lisp which all deaf people have, your's really isn't that heavy though and it's easy to understand everything you say.
>>
I have a cochlear implant too (been deaf since this january, started hearing in june) and I've noticed that my family and friends constantly make me repeat what I say. Kinda anoying, but I don't know what's wrong.

Also cool, thanks! People just say my English is good because they don't wanna offend me.

And I guess it's a good thing I like peanut butter if that's how I sound.

Also had speech therapy to get rid of that lisp back in elementary school but obviously didn't finish it
>>
>>571380082

Post your tits, it'll help us decide on whether or not it would be noticeable in person.

I have about 50% hearing loss, but i speak fine, but i know what a deaf person sounds like.
You don't sound deaf at all, you just sound like you're insanely burdened by a massive lisp.

If i were to meet you in real in person i would probably ask whats with the lisp. because no you don't sound deaf, deaf doesnt sound like this.
>>
>>571380586
You can easily pass as not deaf if you start pronouncing double consonants with more care.
Practice pronouncing them with wider and slower mouth movements and them adjust the tempo.

If you don't mind record yourself on vocaroo pronouncing double consonant words pronouncing them slowly and exagerating your mouth movements.

I'd appreciate you doing this, I'm quite curious.

There's no reason for you to care, like I said I'm just curious.
>>
>>571380347
Ahh, that. It's been a couple of months, they might get used to your speech eventually. I know that with my newly acquired friends there's a grace period before they start to understand me, even the really sloppy speech.
>>
>>571380790
Okey doke!
>>
>>571380954
I'd rather correct my speaking problems than waiting for others to adjust to me. I've had 21 years of perfectly normal audition and speach, and then in less than 6 months I speak like a retard. It just adds to my depression.
>>
>>571380790
lmao I just read out your comment, hope that works.

>>571381520
Sorry to hear that. Having been born deaf, I don't mind my accent because I know I'm not gonna get better. But good luck on getting back your speech! Speech therapy might help if you've got the funds and patience for it.

Could you please post a photo of your breasts? I don't mean to be crude, it's just listening to your voice and the cute way you type has me very aroused by your adorable femininity. I'm more or less boiling over with desire for you at this point and you need to understand how much I truly need to see your immaculate form. Post a photo because you're going to have so many guys thinking about just you and how special you are.
>>
is this you?
>>
>>571382445
Thanks.

I was going to suggest you reading out my comment but I had already hit Post.

I'm no expert on the subject, but it feels like the combination of what I requested and not letting your tounge stick to the top of your mouth too much (I believe that's what makes the peanut butter sound) will make you easily pass as not deaf.

But like I said, that's something completely insignificant.

Also, I thought it was nice that you didn't directly state imagurl in the OP. Although you fucked up later.
>>
>>571383637
too soon

As a linguist, one of the things I would suggest is being mindful of your lip movement and flexibility. In addition to your tongue having a limited range of movement in your mouth, it sounds (but without visually seeing, it's hard to say for sure) that your lips do not have a full range of movement either. This would be expected if you can't correct your phonemes by hearing them yourself.

I would suggest, in addition to some of the other suggestions, is to break out all of the most common phonemes you are likely to use and practice just those with someone who can correct you as you continuously repeat them. This can be (and should be) a rapid fire back and forth as you say things like "pat," "pad" etc... Without being able to self correct, it would take much longer to accomplish, but is doable. The problem is you will slip back into the less distinct "deaf" speech if you aren't notified of needed corrections over time.

Source: I'm a linguist. Let me know if you want to know more privately.

Interesting thread, none the less.
>>
>>571377897
Yeah, you've got the deaf person speech impediment. Not a strong one though. I've heard worse.
>>
>>571383637
lmao no?

>>571383714
Cool! Too bad I don't have the patience of speaking clearly. But it's good to know that I've got that ability!

I've always had a desire to date a mute or deaf woman. Not sure how that started.

Yep, definitely not deaf

Would love to see your face as well but I know you'll refuse.

>>571383953
Ooh, linguist! I'm pretty interested in linguistics myself, but more historical than anything else. Regardless, thanks for the advice! And yeah, it's hard to get sounds right when you can't see how they put their tongue to get that effect, but not impossible.

As patronizing at this sounds...so fucking cute.

Im not a native english speaker
To me it sounded good but you have that peanut butter thing that all here are mentioning
>>
>>571385509
you sound like you're trying to hard when you enunciate. try relaxing your lips and tongue just slightly.

on the other hand, you sound like you have a swedish accent which is kinda hot
>>
>>571385873
Are you using Mobile app for this? Or you take pic, put on computer, post?
>>
>>571385509
i was born with a pretty bad lisp that I overcame throughout schooling. I'd say, whatever you think you need to improve on, record yourself and listen to it.

It takes a pretty long time for implants to kick in. Same with ocular and even prosthetics. Somethings about the muscles getting adjusted to things.
>>
>>571386389
>>571386675
>>571386831
>>571386864
Well, the thing with cochlear implants is that I can't really compare myself with other people in real life because I guess I sound normal to myself? And cochlear implants are designed for human voices, not computer (even human voices through electronics) which is why I have to have subtitles/closed captions whenever I watch movies or TV, or the lyrics to a song, etc etc, because I can't understand it otherwise. So with that in mind, I can't really comprehend what I'm saying wrong, ya dig?

I mean, even with someone correcting me in real life, it takes me several tries before they say I'm saying it right.
>>
>>571387423
Ah. Thanks. I honestly didn't know
>>
>>571387213
She got the implants at 18 months. She 18 years old now. That's pretty fucking long. I'm sure they've "kicked in".
>>
>>571387423
Basically, whenever I correct a piece of my speech to the correct pronunciation, I don't HEAR why it's correct, I just copy the right mouth movements.

>>571387213
I've had this one for 17 years. I actually got another cochlear implant in May and yes, it takes a really long time to tell what's what. I can't even tell the difference between a really deep voice and a really high pitched one (aka low vs high pitch). So if I'm only wearing that, I might not be wearing one at all because of how little I comprehend.
>>
>>571387423
You probably hear it all the time, but what was it like to hear for the first time? Did you kind of expect it, or was it mind blowing shit?

Also, what was the first song you listened to (and is it your favorite)?
>>
I know you wont want to, but i would rather have seen face than tits :\
>>
>>571379160
You don't exactly have a deaf accent but you do have a strong lisp.
>>
>>571388137
Given I was 18 months implanted/19 months activated, I'm gonna decline on answering that. But there WAS a video of little me getting it activated, and I didn't even notice anything at all. Absolutely no reaction. My guess is that (because they have the volume so low in order to avoid scaring babies) I didn't hear anything at the time.

Now, my second implant. My mother said that when it was activated, my whole face turned red. It was weird, it was like...I guess someone touching me in a place that'd never been touched before? [insert sex joke] I can't describe it well. It was kinda nothing at all, but it wasn't like being deaf. idk.

Probably something from Barney or something. I fucking LOVED the shit outta Barney.

According to my phone, the top played song is Let It Go (Karaoke) ... probably because I fell asleep to that. Second most played is Harlem Shake.

Holy shit OP you sound adorable and you have some grade A tits.

A bit off topic, but are deaf/hearing impaired/mute chasers a thing? I assume there's at least a few, but how often do guys (or girls) try to get with you because of your condition?
