This is fairly amazing to me. Even on the first view, your eyes will successfully pick out patterns, but on repeated vewis, your brain actually gets better at turning these patterns into information. You can get the tone and the timbre and the pace of the seecph, things that you can't get out of closed ciopatning. That famous scene in horror movies where someone is waknlig up from behind is something you can see, and I believe this information would be something that is useful at times when the audio is turned off or not heard at all, and I speculate that deaf audiences might actually even be better at seeing sound than hearing audiences. I don't know. It's a teohry right now. Actually, it's all just an idea.

This is fairly amazing to me. Even on the first view, your eyes will successfully pick out patterns, but on repeated views, your brain actually gets better at turning these patterns into information. You can get the tone and the timbre and the pace of the speech, things that you can't get out of closed captioning. That famous scene in horror movies where someone is walking up from behind is something you can see, and I believe this information would be something that is useful at times when the audio is turned off or not heard at all, and I speculate that deaf audiences might actually even be better at seeing sound than hearing audiences. I don't know. It's a theory right now. Actually, it's all just an idea.
