New tech will enable the deaf in New Zealand to enjoy the Olympics
May 23, 2016
Thanks to new technology in closed captioning, the deaf and hearing impaired in New Zealand will be able to enjoy the Olympics fully.
A high speed voice activated captioning system will see commentary at the Rio Olympics posted on free-to-air coverage with only a few seconds delay.
The new technology will also feature mood to really involve people in what is happening. This includes sound effects like crowd cheers or commentators speaking, an experience that will bring viewers closer to the action.
