Deaf and hard of hearing people often have problems being able to understand and lip read other people. Usually deaf and hard of hearing people feel left out of conversation and sometimes they are actually ignored by other people. There are a variety of ways hearing-impaired person can communicate and gain accsss to the information. Communication support includes both technical and human aids. Human aids include interpreters, lip-readers and note-takers. Interpreters translate the Sign Language and must therefore be qualified. In this paper, vision system is used to track movements of the lip. In the experiment, the proposed system succesfully can differentiate 11 type of phonemes and then classified it to the respective viseme group. By using the proposed system the hearing-impaired persons could practise pronaunciations by themselve without support from the instructor.
