Cinema subtitle glasses

Here is a video from the BBC (available also outside the UK) on a set of Subtitle Glasses that allow the viewer to see the subtitles though them. This new device will give Deaf and Hard of Hearing people the opportunity to chose the time and the location of the cinema without constraints.  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-14654339

How subtitles are made for the BBC
