TranscribeGlass is one of the only assistive devices for the deaf that displays captions in real time on a heads up display in the user's field of vision
TranscribeGlass will be sold at Rs. 4,000 ($56) - 1/20th the average pair of hearing aids, 1/15th the average smart glass and 1/100th the cost of a cochlear implant.
TranscribeGlass is a retrofit smart glass. No need for surgeries, implants, or devices inside or on your ear. Simply snap-on the device to any spectacle frames!
