    Abstract: ABSTRACT
    The main purpose of this study was to improve the reading comprehension and to increase the
    English vocabulary of students with hearing impairment; with the sub-goal of encouraging them to
    strive for success. To overcome the reading difficulty of students with hearing impairment, the author
    developed a multimedia program with main ideas, graphic organizers and English key words integrated
    to make reading a more exciting, pleasant and understandable experience. The multimedia stories of
    Taiwanese deaf or hard-of-hearing celebrities included a famous model, a professor, a teacher, an
    athlete, a computer programmer, an illustrator, an insurance agent and a deaf leader. In the main idea
    identification, English word pronunciation, recognition, listening comprehension and lip-reading,
    post-test scores were significantly higher than pre-test scores. Students also found these stories
    encouraging and hoped they could have more similar multimedia stories.
