Deaf college students were used to determine quantitative sentence familiarity and lipreading values of the John Tracy Clinic Filmed Test of Lipreading (Taaffe, 1957). There was a low positive correlation between sentence familiarity and the lipreading values. The familiarity and lipreading values of the hearing-impaired subjects were compared with those previously obtained from normal-hearing college students (Lloyd, 1964; Taaffe, 1957).
