Welcome to this edition of “Closed Captioning Minute” where we bring you the latest in industry news.
Did you know Google Glass now has the ability to closed caption… real life? At The Georgia Institute of Technology, researchers have developed a new program called Captioning on Glass that can do just that. For those who are hard of hearing, much of the conversation is spent trying to read a person’s lips to pick up on clues. Captioning on Glass leaves the wearer more able to participate in a conversation or to pick up on facial gestures.

And that’s been your “Closed Captioning Minute.”
