Visual input improves speech comprehension when auditory signals are degraded due to background noise (Sumby & Pollack, 1954) or hearing impairments (Walden, Prosek, & Worthington, 1975). Listeners strategically put greater focus on visual information to augment impoverished auditory information. This advantage of visual reliance is routinely utilized at clinical settings for adults with neurogenic communication disorders. Individuals experiencing auditory comprehension deficits are frequently encouraged by clinicians to look at speakers’ faces during daily conversations. Despite the presumed advantage of visual information and the routine recommendation on the use of visual cues, there is a lack of research regarding the way individuals with brain lesions utilize visual information.
