Find it hard to hear in the cinema? Forget deaf aids — try these glasses

    An inventor has developed a system which will allow deaf people to enjoy visits to the cinema without having to watch special screenings for the hard-of-hearing.

    Jack Ezra, 56, has built the prototype for glasses that would enable deaf film-goers to read sub-titles during any movie. The sub-titles, displayed on a separate screen, would be invisible to those not wearing the glasses.

    The former JFS student said: “The deaf seem to be left out of everything and this would allow them to go to the movies whenever they like.”

    The former teacher, who now runs his own 3D technology company, is seeking the £135,000 funding he needs to produce and market his invention.

    He said: “This would change the film industry, bringing in a whole market of people who have been forgotten about.”
