Yanny vs Laurel

Yanni Laurel

A Denver Health Speech Pathologist Gives Her Take on the Internet Debate 

It's the great debate that's been breaking the Internet. Do you hear Yanny or Laurel? Twitter user Cloe Feldman posted a four second audio clip asking a simple question: 'What do you hear?! Yanny or Laurel?' Millions of people have been debating about it, not unlike the whole dress debate of 2015. We thought this would be a good opportunity to ask our lead speech pathologist, Deantha Valencia, what she thinks. Watch this short video where she explains how the audio may be manipulated so that people may be hearing different frequencies, depending on what type of device it is being played on. 

May is also Better Speech and Hearing Month. Find out more about our services for real speech and hearing problems in this blog.
