These Glasses Revolutionized Theatre for the Hearing-Impaired
These glasses are stylish and smart! They project captions in real-time for theatergoers who have hearing impairments or just want a subtitled experience. The technology was developed by the National Theatre of Great Britain. It first made its hop across the pond when the Institute on Disabilities at Temple University in Philadelphia reached out for a partnership. Now, Smart Caption Glasses are available for the general public at no cost during performances at People’s Light Theatre in Malvern, Pennsylvania. This marks one step towards the greater goal of making Philadelphia the most arts-accessible city in the country.
