This is a PDF that is widely used to screen babies for developmental delay. It is based on social behavior, fine motor skills, language, and gross motor skills. Open the chart, and put a sheet of paper at the 14 month notch from top to bottom. That way, if there are behaviors she does that you didn't mention which she ought to be able to do, you can identify them.**
Based only on what you've said (there is more to consider), I would say that she is not where she should be. Part of it could be explained by a hearing problem, but not all of it.
She should have a 15 month well-child visit scheduled (in the US, babies are seen at: 1 week, 1-, 2-, 4-, 6-, 9-, 12-, 15-, 18- and 24-months. If she doesn't have a visit scheduled, please encourage the parents to make an appointment with her primary care provider (PCP) within a month for an evaluation of her development. In the meantime, if the parents have not taken videos of her on a semi-regular basis, video-recording her eating, playing, babbling, listening to music, walking, etc., might come in handy.
If her PCP is unconcerned, ask for a second opinion.
In terms of development of communication (which includes pointing to things she wants, indicating that she's hungry, that she doesn't want something, etc.), a mother's feeling that something is not right is the most reliable source of information; the maternal grandmother's concerns are the second most reliable source. (Sorry, all you dads out there!) In other words, a doctor takes such concerns seriously, and unless their exam completely contradicts the source's concerns, tests are ordered, because if something is found, early intervention in delays is more beneficial than later intervention.
**Average is the white part of the rectangle. Behind but still within normal limits is the blue part of the rectangle. For example, you'll see that she should be standing alone for more than several seconds - not holding on to anything - by now.
