The ‘See-Through Captions’ display has been designed by the Digital Nature Group as a solution for expanding accessibility for those in the deaf or hard-of-hearing community.
The system maintains a transparent design in order to help users maintain conversations without losing sight of facial expressions or other natural aspects of in-person communication. The display has been thoroughly tested by the developers in a number of real-like situations to ensure it is as effective as possible for users with any degree of hearing loss.
The ‘See-Through Captions’ display harnesses the power of the Digital Nature Group’s automatic speech recognition (ASR) technology to allow for seamless real-time captioning.
The system has been awarded Japan’s highest award by James Dyson for its ability to greatly elevate communication within the deaf or hard-of-hearing community.
