PervasiveSUB, a new software developed by researchers from Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) and Federation of Deaf-Blind Persons Associations (FASOCIDE) in Spain allows deaf and blind people to enjoy television content in real time without any intermediaries.

The software compiles all the subtitles of television channels and sends them to a central server which forwards them to smartphones or tablets.

The compiled data from smartphones or tablets are sent to the Braille line of the deaf-blind person through an app that makes it possible to control the speed of the subtitles that are captured directly from the TV broadcast in perfect synchronization.

The technique has been tested by a group of deaf-blind users and is found to be working without any lag.

The users have also praised its ability to transmit to Braille lines and the ability to adjust the reading and viewing speed.

The technology has already been implemented on various Spanish channels in Madrid, and it will soon be available in the other regions as well.
