SmartEyeglass Developer Edition
sound to text right before your eyes

SmartEyeglass Developer Edition by Sony can display conversations in text, just like subtitles, via a new smartphone app 'LiveCap' developed by VerbaVoice.
SmartEyeglass will not interfere with your view, nor is it stressful to your eyes. The superimposed text is easy to read, easy on the eye. In everyday situations and in the workplace, SmartEyeglass will support anyone who needs assistance in hearing, for better and effective communication, in a more natural way.

  • *This feature uses an app developed by VerbaVoice for SmartEyeglass. New apps to support users in various situations, such as navigating you in a new city, are released as they are developed. On the GooglePlay™ Store, download the SmartEyeglass app of your choice.
  • * As of October 2015, 'LiveCap' is currently available in English, German, French and Spanish.
