To Hear

A 29-year old woman who has been deaf for her entire life activates a cochlear implant and hears herself clearly for the very first time:

It is moving to see someone receive a gift that we all take for granted every day. Videos like this show us all how blessed we really are.

    That's incredible, but I thought having been deaf her whole life she'd be unable to talk. She speaks very clearly.

  • If I had to speculate, my guess is she has used normal hearing aids prior to this, allowing her to learn how to speak and hear. But the cochlear implants give a whole new level of clarity.

    Hah, I hadn't considered that, but it absolutely makes sense. Still, incredible thing to witness, something I could never imagine experiencing.
