Sony’s subtitle glasses have been a long time in coming: the US rollout began more than a year ago, but the gradual launch has left hard-of-hearing Americans with few modern closed captioning options at the movies. They’ll have a much easier time of it as of this month, as Regal is providing the glasses to nearly 6,000 theaters before May is over. While the wide-scale deployment is coming later than the original first quarter target, it could be welcome for viewers who’ve had to either deal with clunkier subtitle systems or else stay at home. The Sony solution still won’t be ubiquitous, especially when it sells for $1,750 per pair, but there’s now a good chance that at least one captioning-friendly theater will be within reach.
