#4 & #6

#4 , #6 and #7 I dunno myself how its possible..but an uncle of my friend was born complety deaf and while he does sign language he talks along..it sounds a bit weird of course..but he actually talks good. So i guess its not impossible for a deaf person to almost talk normal after they can hear again

Great video. I can't even begin to imagine what she felt like in that moment.
She explains a bit more about her speaking and procedures on Ellen show, after 8 days of hearing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fp4usWroDew Also, very touching

#3 It's an inner ear implant, more precisely called a Cochlear Implant. Have a look on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cochlear_implant
#4 , #6 , #7, #8 : what happens is that deaf people may not be completely deaf. In addition, if they were not born deaf, they may have spoken before. Following a severe ear infection (or something else), they may become deaf. People how are deaf and mute are often people that never heard well. In addition, as #8 said, even deaf and mute people are able to make sounds, they just don't speak well because they haven't had the chance to correlate the sound with the way to articulate properly.

I was born deaf and 8 weeks ago I received a hearing implant. This is the video of them turning it on and me hearing myself for the first time Edit: For those of you who have asked the implant I received was Esteem offered by Envoy Medical. Sarah Churman.

Anyway, happy to you girl!

#12 Well then I start to wonder how come she speaks so well... Thank gosh I'm not a doctor!

Severely hearing impaired since birth, Sarah Churman had long managed to cope in a world where sounds came as if they were under water. But now, a surgical implant lets her hear her own voice.

#12 Have you ever imagined how music souds to her before the implant?

hears for the first time? you gotta be kidding me. there is no way she could understand any kind of sound or speech if she hears it for the first time. "she read lips" - no, she has her eyes closed. and besides of understanding speech, she can even produce it. perfectly. all the deaf speech i have heard was just non-sense primitive noises.
probably she was not born deaf but just lost the ability at some point of her life. otherwise - a true miracle of God.

Turns out her mother-in-law used all of her savings to pay for the operation for one ear, $30,000.
The deaf girl went on the Ellen show and Ellen paid the mother-in-law back for the operation and fully paid for the 2nd ear too. Great story

Well ... I am only 23 and I learned three weeks ago I got otosclerosis so ... in reverse I'll be deaf by the end of my life. I wake up every day with a louder tinnitus and a smaller audition spectrum.
I am happy that science can heal some of us

#13 After yesterday's news, I wondered who would bring some icrap to Snotr first, looks like you're the winner. Remember, if you're planing to take pictures of Mr. Job's send off, NO FLASH! I'm sure Steve would have insisted on that.

#10 Not a Cochlear implant in this case. It is an Esteem.
"Hello, I was born deaf and 8 weeks ago I received a hearing implant. This is the video of them turning it on and me hearing myself for the first time Edit: For those of you who have asked the implant I received was Esteem offered by Envoy Medical." - sloanchurman
How the Esteem works --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xdBzjR-i9E0
Not an inner-ear stimluator, but a bridge for missing or deformed bones in the ear.

#17 is right, If a person born deaf likely she is dumb, that's not the first time she hear
Taineract 3 years ago
"Deafness," by its supposedly official definition doesn't necessarily mean absolutely no sound is heard. She likely was just hard of hearing to the point of not being able to understand someone without context, body language, and/or reading lips.
So the title of the video is a bit misleading. This obviously isn't he first time she's heard anything. This is probably the first time she's heard the world as we, with typical working human ears hear it.

This video made me cry , i'm partially deaf in one ear due to a botched operation on my ear when I was young.(Waiting on graft operation to fix it in new year as its not covered by my insurance I have had to save and save for this)
I can tell you with out a doubt, I wear a hearing aid for many years in that ear and it was 5 years before they decided and a suitable digital hearing aid was on the market and would work for my type of deafness , the first time I got that when I was a young teen I got totally freaked to be able to hear stereo again and to not have to ask "sorry what" every time I was asked a question.
I'm so happy for this one girl but there are thousands and thousands of others out there that could be helped by this implant that has been around for years!

Im happy she can hear again, but she's not really Deaf, more likely deaf. She obviously is very intelligent and determined. Im glad she's happy, but she can hardly be considered representative of Deaf culture. D/deaf... Big difference
SunshineEddy 2 years ago
I am not going to pretend for a minute that I have the patience and determination to do this myself, but if you had enough of each, you could eventually speak normally without ever having heard a sound before. Each sound creates a different vibration in your throat; each sound form a different shape on your lips and tongue. If it were really important to someone, they could learn to speak as well as she does, though deaf from birth.
At any rate, I fail to understand why the mood of the video had to be brought down a notch over an argument over how deaf she was. As if she has somehow cheated us for not being completely deaf. Moments that are nothing but happy are so few in this world, celebrate them when they come along, don't beat them down.
