The World Health Organization estimates that by 2050, 1 in every 10 will have “disabling hearing loss”. Captioning on Google Glass (CoG) is a project to provide real-time captioning.
Towards an Understanding of Real-time Captioning on Head-worn Displays (HWD) As an extension of previous work that showed the potential HWDs could have for real-time captioning, we came up with multiple iterations for studies comparing HWDs (eg. Vuzix Blade, Google Glass) with mobile phones captioning. In this study, we compared the two during a stationary, instructional task assembling blocks.
Conversational greeting detection using captioning on head worn displays versus smartphones Ostrove et. al. found that over half of DHH students’ negative school experiences were due to not hearing something, such as a spoken name, and getting in trouble. In this study, we focus on providing better name awareness while on-the-go. Participants navigate an office building while responding to their name popping up on either the Google Glass or mobile phone.
