The brain region responsible for processing visual information, including lip-reading, is called the visual cortex. This region is located in the back of the brain, just behind the eyes. When someone attempts to lip-read, the visual cortex is activated and attempts to interpret the movement of the lips.

How do people lip read?
Lip reading is the ability to interpret the visual cues from a person’s lips to understand what they are saying. This can be done by watching the movement of the lips and tongue, and by observing the facial expressions that accompany speech.
