Ashbel, et. al..
Good for your dad!
You will find that you also read lips...everyone does to one extent or another. Over the years I have become very proficient at it, and get this...the very best lipreaders can only correctly identify 35 to 45% of the words they see.
so many words look the same on the lips..

Try this..have someone say to you without sound the word "Vacuum"...Now tell me what word(s) you read!

this will give you a small idea of how careful lip readers must be to try to get the words in context with the larger message, and that my friend, can be very difficult..almost a sdifficult as typing without misspellings!
