IMPROVED HEARING ACCESS AT THE MOVIES
Do you have difficulty making out all the dialogue at the movies? What happens when the music swells in the background, and the movie characters drop their voices? Sometimes, even the best hearing aids cannot overcome poor signal-to-noise ratios, leaving you guessing at the punch line, or wondering what twist the plot just took.
6,000 Regal Cinema screens across the United States (including Edwards Theater at Weslayan and Hwy 59) now boast availability of Sony closed-captioning glasses for patrons. These lightweight glasses project captions which appear to float about 10 feet in front of the user. The captions are synchronized with the dialogue on the screen. They also come with audio tracks that describe the action on the screen for blind people, or they can boost the audio levels of the movie for those who are hard of hearing. Simply ask for them at special services, and sit back and enjoy the show.
