MALVERN, Pennsylvania (WPVI) -- On Thursday, Action News got a first-hand look at how technology is making a tremendous difference in Chester County for people with disabilities.

The People's Light theater is making smart caption glasses available during performances.

They allow people who are deaf or experience hearing loss to view captions as the performance happens live in real-time.

Every word and sound from the production is synchronized directly onto the lenses of the smart glasses.

It gives people with hearing disabilities an improved way to enjoy the theater, the company says.
