See-through masks from Hong Kong open up communication for lip-readers during pandemic

But face masks have had a negative impact on the daily lives of the city’s hearing-impaired community, especially for those who lip-read to communicate. Hong Kong’s Lingnan University has come up with an award-winning solution in the form of reusable, transparent masks that allow deaf people to lip-read while still protecting them from Covid-19. Their “12° Mask” earned a gold award on September 14, 2021, at the international MUSE Design Awards in the Conceptual Design category.
