You know me, I’m all about the latest technology that will enhance visits to the Cinema and Theatre for people with hearing loss.
As soon as I saw the news around this revolutionary caption glasses technology, I wanted to update you all!
I never had the chance to go to the Theatre much when I was a child, only because it wasn’t accessible to me. I can’t hear enough to be able to understand speech without lipreading and at the Theatre, it was a rare chance to be able to sit close enough to the stage to be able to lipread!
Fortunately, I have been able to go to a few captioned Theatre performances, where they have a caption box to the side of the stage. These boxes are live captioned by a Palantypist who quickly types what the people on the stage are saying. However, caption box performances aren’t on as often as subtitled cinema showings are.
So, this means we need a better solution… and this is where the news come in!
