Movie subtitles straight to your glasses

Most movies screened in Germany are dubbed into German, but that creates a problem for the deaf or hearing-impaired, since they cannot rely on the subtitles shown in many other nations.

Researchers at the University of Applied Sciences in Zwickau, Germany, hope they have found a way around that problem with a pair of data-equipped spectacles that can be used to show subtitles in synchronization with the images on the movie screen.

The subtitles in German are available free in Germany and Austria for selected films on current release as a service to the deaf.
