Innovation Description :
This is a small smart spectacle that converts speech to text and displays it on the screen of the glass to enable a hearing impaired understand (by reading) what the other person is saying. The hearing-impaired community is often disregarded and isolated from mainstream society, and there is no accessible solution for them to easily integrate into the mainstream. This innovation is born out of a desire to solve this problem and to create an affordable, scalable, and inclusive solution to the communication gap between the hearing-impaired and the hearing-enabled.
