Meaning of Deafness
Hearing loss, also known as hard of hearing, anacusis, or hearing impairment, is a partial or total inability to hear. - See link


Deafness in Spanish is Sordera
La sordera es la dificultad o la imposibilidad de usar el sentido del oído debido a una pérdida de la capacidad auditiva parcial (hipoacusia) o total (cofosis), y unilateral o bilateral. Así pues, una persona sorda será incapaz o tendrá problemas para escuchar. Ésta puede ser un rasgo hereditario o puede ser consecuencia de una enfermedad, traumatismo, exposición a largo plazo al ruido, o medicamentos agresivos para el nervio auditivo. - See link
