Welcome to the Association of Lipspeakers

The Association of Lipspeakers (ALS) is the professional body that represents lipspeakers. We aim to promote lipspeaking and its good practice and encourage the further development of lipspeaking as a communication service.

This site will enable you to find qualified and NRCPD registered lipspeakers. In order to have the best experience, you can choose between either straight forward lipspeaking or lipspeaking with some signs. Please be clear as to what type of lipspeaking service you would like. Either straightforward lipspeaking or lipspeaking with the aid of signs * The majority of ALS lipspeakers offer a Sign Supported lipspeaking service.

What is a lipspeaker

A lipspeaker is a hearing person who has been professionally trained to be easy to lipread. The lipspeaker makes sure they are clearly visible to the lipreader and silently and accurately repeats the spoken message.

How to find a lipspeaker

There are less than 50 Qualified NRCPD Registered lipspeakers in the UK. We offer you three options to find a lipspeaker nearest to you. Click on the button below to search for a Registered lipspeaker by name or geographic location.
