Masks are becoming available with a clear screen to aid lip reading. We are aware of two products, both are suitable for day to day communication but are not for use in medical settings:
- https://shop.irishdeaf.com/clear-face-mask – a transparent face mask (€99 for a pack of 24)
- https://www.just-smile.uk – this is a fabric mask with a clear panel (£5 each)
Action on Hearing Loss have designed ‘exemption cards’ for people with a hearing loss and for people communicating with someone who has a hearing loss. Also a clear guide to face covering regulations.
