I’ve just watched another “This person deaf since birth hearing for the first time”. While it’s very touching, it seems like some information is missing or not precisely true.
In this one, the woman refers to the person talking to her as sounding “high pitched” - if you have NEVER heard anything in your life, how would you know what high vs. low pitches sound like? Isn’t that a little like a person who has been completely blind their whole lives suddenly seeing and accurately saying that something looks a little light or dark? A little more yellow than blue?
If someone has been entirely unable to hear anything their whole lives long, when they ARE able to hear, it seems to me they would have a period of adjustment during which their brain would have to learn how to process sound and they would have to learn how to interpret it.
Does anyone here have any direct experience with this?
