Several companies have started marketing "live-captioning glasses" to help hearing-impaired users communicate with hearing persons by overlaying real-time transcribed speech on the lenses.
Stanford University's Tom Pritsky said the glasses his company TranscribeGlass makes complement hearing aids by filling in blanks in conversations through captions and subtitles.
Most live-captioning glasses are eyewear equipped with a microphone, a speech-processing computer, a battery, and a text display.
Dan Scarfe with speech-processing application provider XRAI Glass credits these innovations to advances in speech-recognition software, adding, "I don't think we're more than six months away from a killer piece of hardware that you can absolutely use for this."
