TranscribeGlass is a revolutionary technology that is changing the way people with hearing loss communicate with others, and the best part is that it’s available at an affordable price of $55. These high-tech glasses can transcribe speech in real-time and display the text as subtitles on the lenses in front of the wearer’s eyes. This innovative technology has the potential to help people who are deaf or hard of hearing communicate more seamlessly with hearing people, and it’s now more accessible than ever before.

Paul Shuttleworth, a resident of Manchester, England, is one of the many people who have benefited from these glasses. He is profoundly deaf in both ears and uses a mobile live audio transcription app as his main conversational tool. But the glasses have helped him talk and participate in conversations in ways that he had never been able to before, and at an affordable price.

The glasses have become increasingly popular in recent years, with a slew of companies rolling out their versions. TranscribeGlass, the company behind the glasses, has gained significant attention after a TikTok video went viral. The video demonstrated how the glasses provide subtitles for words that are spoken, making it easier for individuals with hearing loss to follow conversations.

Tom Pritsky, co-founder of TranscribeGlass, has moderate to severe bilateral hearing loss and wears hearing aids. He has found that the glasses help him fill in the blanks and improve his understanding of conversations. “The hearing aids give me audio, but it’s unclear, and I miss words,” Pritsky says. “If I can fill in some of those words via captions and subtitles, then it helps me continue to understand the conversation and not lose the thread.”

The glasses have the potential to revolutionize the way people with hearing loss communicate with others, and the affordable price of $55 makes them more accessible to those who need them the most. They can help improve the quality of life for those with hearing loss and make it easier for them to participate in conversations. However, it is important to note that these glasses are not perfect and may never fully replace human translators.
