It would be nice to hear his voice, though it's the hands-on feel that these films and videos can never convey but which would be the most instructive, of course!

But, can anyone here lip-read Japanese?
Hi, Cady,
Some deaf Japanese gent perchance? I would have thought this would be the best bet.
In the Yorkshire cotton mills of the U.K in the 40s /50s women were able to read lips.Noisy machinery prevented talking.No problem nowadays, you can speak /hear quite clearly in the dole /job centre[a misnomer if ever there was one ].Cheers, Joe.
