New Theatre Captioning Device goes into action
For many of us, watching captioned performances can be frustrating - we all watch the same monitors displaying the live text as the performance progresses.
The way deaf people watch captioned theatre could be changing with the launch of a new device.
AirScript's developers, Cambridge Consultants, hope the handsets will attract more tourists to theatres.
The captions, received over wifi, scroll throughout live performances.
The handsets have LED backlighting with a black background and orange text to minimise glare. They have a battery life of up to six hours.
