Do bad lip reading experiences exist?

I often get asked “What is forensic lip reading?”.

When a lip reader is lip reading, they are usually doing this in real life, face to face, watching a person’s lips, facial expressions, eyes, gestures, body language, and using context to clue themselves into the topic, so that they can understand another person. Many factors affect the lip readability of a person so the outcome is never a perfect translation. If enough of the factors affecting lip reading are present in a meaningful enough way, it all comes together beautifully to make sense to the skilled lip reader.

Forensic lip reading (or speech reading) is the simple transition of the skill of lip reading from real life to media, lip reading CCTV or video clips. Reading lips in 2D is much harder than reading lips in real life 3D because so many clues are missing. This makes for a bad lip reading experience for the lip reader. So many people assume, just because our lip readers can read lips, we can lip read anything you send us. We get so many videos that are #FAILs when we see them. So how can we make this a better experience for the lip reader?
