People who are fluent in the language do not need vowels to read Hebrew, and most things written in Hebrew in Israel are written without vowels.

With most letters, the dagesh does not significantly affect pronunciation of the letter; it simply marks a split between syllables, where the letter is pronounced both at the end of the first syllable and the beginning of the second.
With the letters Beit, Kaf and Pei, however, the dagesh indicates that the letter should be pronounced with its hard sound b, k, p rather than its soft sound v, kh, f.The chart above shows the Hebrew alphabet with the name of the letter, and the approximate equivalent sound in English (and the numerical value).
