This paper is an overview of the research we have carried out at Linkoping University on cognitive aspects of visual language processing and related communicative forms. In the first section, a cognitive individual difference perspective on speechreading is introduced. In the second, compensatory perceptual mechanisms are discussed on the basis of behavioral and neurophysiological data. The third section addresses further the issue of perceptual versus cognitive compensation, and the fourth and fifth sections apply a set of cognitive tests based on the concept of working memory for poorly specified language input to data on the successes and failures with cochlear implants, tactile aids and hearing aids.
