'Theater For All Ears' aims to redefine the live theater experience for people with hearing impairments. Smart technology can offer those with hearing impairments a new range of helpful communicative tools, however, experiences like live theater can still pose a major problem. To combat this issue, Samsung is introducing a new tool to its VR headset, which aims to enhance the viewing of live shows for everyone.

Users simply place the headsets over their eyes, while smart technology and virtual reality create subtitles in real-time. This technology allows for a wider range of viewers to experience a live show without an obstruction to their scenery, or a live interpreter.

Theater For All Ears, successfully taps into a currently untouched market by enabling people with hearing impairments to enjoy live theater with less effort.
