Communication Support for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing using Head Mounted Display: Toward Its Use in Museums

Nobuko Kato, Yuto Shinozaki

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to clarify the issues of using Optical See-Through Head Mounted Displays (HMD) to provide communication support for the disabled in museums. The study also examined how to present closed captions in the HMD that would be suitable for the deaf and hard of hearing. The presentation of closed captions for the deaf and hard of hearing person adopts different methods, depending on the situation, such as presenting a few lines (akin to closed captions used in television programs and movies) or presenting several dozen lines in an entire screen, as seen in university classes and lectures. There are many items that need to be examined in order to use HMD in museums, including the ideal HMD presentation method for the deaf and hard of hearing person and the comprehension levels and safety when closed captions are presented. This paper detailed the results of a simulation experiment of presenting closed captions using HMD for the deaf and hard of hearing.
