Re: Speech vs Writing
Intresting question. I don't really have an answer to which I'd perfer over the other. To me they are simply communication barriers. If a person can't read, they can still learn by people reading to them or books on tape or something. Not being able to hear or speak, then you would learn to read and write very well and use sign language. There's so many ways to communicate to each other that neither really hinders a person too badly. That's not to say that life choices wouldn't changed by these restricitons, cause lets face it, it'd be REALLY tough to learn to play music you couldn't hear.
