It is a nice demonstration that can be used in auditory rehabilitation class when talking about speechreading and speech perception.

Technical Remarks:

Easy to use and clear demonstration.

This is a nice demonstration of the McGurk effect, and my speech science class "got it" in the context of demonstrating speech perception (or mis-perception).  It was helpful only as a 5-10 minute demo, but then a lot of useful materials are only 5-10 minute demos.

Technical Remarks:

I don't like how it loops.  When my students had their eyes closed (as recommended), they got out of sync with their judgments with eyes open.  I was able to remedy this, of course, by simply pressing pause at the appropriate time, but it's awfully fast, and easy to miss the end-point.

Another issue is that the material has an instruction to "point here to see the syllables" and nothing happens when you point (or click).
