That is pretty amazing, I'm happy for her.

I just wish the other woman didn't talk to her as though she was a 3 year old child.

That's lovely, but how come she speaks so perfectly straight off the bat?


Well, she HAS heard a single sound before, like how you can hear yourself when you shut your ears or get some temporary tinnitus. It';s 29 years, she can probably hear herself as the vibrations made will directly reach the ear drum, and sound travels better through one sole dense medium/set of similar mediums than through air.

There was a woman in the Metro today talking about this. Apparently she has lost her sense of taste as a consequence but wouldn't change it for the world.

She either wasn't completely deaf or hasn't been deaf from birth.

Still pretty cool though

my friends guess was "because deaf people, especially deaf people who have been that way all their life, are very sensitive to vibrations, so when they do talk they can feel it, whether its vibrating in the areas around their skull, like their jawbone, or their chest.. so you will develope an accent.. that or from being very good at lip reading... if you say the word "laughter" in a few different accents..
the mouth movements are very different
thats my guess anyway"

seems a legit answer
