Deaf theatre goers in the UK to be given hi-tech glasses
October 22, 2017
The National Theatre in the UK is set to start an amazing initiative from next year that will allow deaf theatre-goers to directly watch a live stage performance and at the same time read captions of the dialogues spoken by the actors.
So far, deaf audiences had to depend on dialogue screens at the side of the auditorium, which was available only for some performances.
But with this change, deaf people can wear the hi-tech glasses during any live performance and get to read the captions shown on the lenses of the glasses.
The idea hopes to build inclusion, improve the experiences of the deaf theatre-goers and also increase the number of deaf viewers.
