Not all do, just like not all blind people have excellent hearing. It is said that when you lose one sense, the other four kick it into high-gear to make up for the loss.

Being able to speak vocally works OK when a deaf person is speaking TO a hearing person but when both people are deaf neither can hear what the other person is saying.

Is it better to be blind or deaf?

It really depends, but it would be bad to be either. If you are blind, you can' see. You have to have some one read to you and you need to be able to recognize people's voices instead of their faces. It can be hard to learn too. Same with being deaf. And it would be hard to understand people. But a lot of people would rather be blind. Why? Because at least you can hear, smell, and actually learn a little bit more then when you are deaf. But if you ever get blind or deaf, don't ask these questions.
