CANTON (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – New technology is heading to the Pro Football Hall of Fame that will enhance the overall visiting experience for those that are deaf or hard-of-hearing.
The Hall of Fame announced its partnership with the tech company, Signglasses LLC, who will provide members of the deaf community with a state of the art set of glasses during their visit to the museum.
These glasses will provide closed captioning during feature presentations at the hall of fame. Vice President of Exhibits/Museum Services Saleem Choudhry says the goal is to have them available by the start of 2020.
Additionally, the Hall of Fame and SignGlasses will co-host an Annual Deaf Awareness Day at the Hall during the course of the three-year agreement.
