An Inclusive Theater Experience for the Hearing Impaired

VR Goggles

Digital technology is pushing boundaries every day, transforming the way we work, live and play. Now it’s transforming the theater experience, making it more accessible for everyone.

London’s renowned National Theatre is dedicated to creating great work and making it available to all. Through a new collaboration with Accenture Digital, the Theatre is transforming and personalizing the theater experience for hard-of-hearing patrons.

The Accenture Digital Open Access Smart Capture pilot program has combined smart captioning and the power of augmented reality to create a personalized theater experience. Through the latest Epson Smart Glasses, users can see captions perfectly synced with the actors’ performances right in front of their eyes, from any seat in the auditorium. They can even customize the way the captions appear, from the size and color of text to the way the words scroll across the screen. No more limited showings in only select seats, watching captions scroll by on distracting, off-stage screens.

This pioneering program offers all National Theatre audiences more choices and a better theater experience. Accenture Digital teams hope to have fully functioning, always-on augmented reality captioning systems in all three of the National Theatre’s auditoriums by late 2018, opening the door to transformative innovation across the arts and other industries in the future.
