Smart glasses with captions have been developed for the deaf and hard of hearing

A British startup company is developing speech captioning smart glasses for the deaf and hard of hearing. Those who wear these glasses can see the speech taking place around them in real time. According to the hopes of the creators, the quality of life of the hearing impaired can be significantly improved with the technology, it was said in the M1 Hírádó program.

The structure can distinguish between speaker and speaker. The speakers are marked with different colors on the inside of the lens. This technology was developed specifically for the hearing impaired. It is not necessary for your user to look directly at the person speaking to them. The glasses must be connected to a smartphone so that its microphone detects the voice.


During the development, the company combined two existing methods: speech captioning and augmented reality. The smart glasses were inspired by the 97-year-old grandfather of one of the company founders, who watched television programs with subtitles. The company manager also admits that a device that looks like sunglasses is not yet an ideal solution.

According to the head of the development company, the product will get better and better as a result of the live test, and in the end, perhaps the implementation of a smart contact lens will become possible.
