The Art of Cueing

Welcome to Cued Speech. These notes, instructions on how to cue, are based on a January 1997 Cued Speech workshop held at MIT that was organized by Jean Krause and taught by Cathy Quenin. If you are serious about learning to cue, we recommend hands-on training from a certified instructor at a Cued Speech class, workshop, or cue camp -- many aspects of cued speech are simpler to demonstrate than explain in a written document.

You are welcome to print a copy of this document for you or your family's personal use. For other uses, please contact Joe Frisbie at the e-mail address at the bottom of the page.

Discussions with Jean Krause, Cathy Quenin and Carolyn Ostrander have been crucial in organizing this material, and any clarity this document possesses is due Ann Dix's careful editing. Remaining errors and confusions are entirely mine. Comments, corrections and criticisms are welcome.

Over the next several months, The Art of Cueing will be annotated with video clips demonstrating how to cue the example words and phrases. The clips require the QuickTime plug-in which is available for both Windows and Mactinoshes, free of charge, from Apple.

Red hypertext links indicate links to video. Each video clip is approximately 5 seconds long, about 100K bytes in size, and should take about 20 seconds to download with a 56K modem. Please let me know via email (see bottom of page) if you have problems or suggestions.

The filming was produced by James G. Butler, Upper Savannah AHEC and South Carolina ETV. Funding was provided by SC Partnership of Distance Education and the Ronald and Mary Ann Lachman Foundation. The editing was performed at the Sensory Communication Group, Research Laboratory for Electronic, MIT and was funded by Louis D. Braida and New England Cued Speech Services. Special thanks to Pam Beck at Cued Speech Discovery for organizing the project, and to our cuers, Beverly Mahoney and JoAnna Waldhour.
