New tech enables blind & deaf to watch TV
Researchers in Spain have developed a new technology that types Braille or subtitles of TV channels in real time and helps deaf and blind people 'watch' television.
People who have tried it say they are now able to access information that they previously could not, as it happens and without any people helping in between.
They have also praised its ability to transmit to Braille lines and the ability to adjust the reading and viewing speed.
The technology is called Pervasive SUB and it gathers all the subtitles of TV channels and sends them to a central server which forwards them to smartphones or tablets. From there, they are sent to the Braille line of the deaf-blind person with the help of the GoAll app.
The app integrates the software, matches with different Braille lines and makes it possible to control the speed of the subtitles that are captured directly from the TV broadcast.
