Summary of Issue: understand the speech (SC 1.4.7)
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
\"... who is hard of hearing can understand the speech.\"

It makes sense in general to say \'understand the speech\'. However, Guideline 1.4 is specifically concerned with making content perceivable rather than understandable. It is better to reword the phrase to be more specific to Principle 1. 

Proposed Change:
Change \"can understand the speech\" to \"can separate the speech from background sounds or other nose\"  

Then, remove the sentence followed: \"Individuals who are hard of hearing have difficulty separating speech from background sounds or other noise.\"
