I-Caption makes Ford's Theatre accessible to the deaf


Sound Associates has outfitted Ford's Theatre in Washington, DC with its handheld I-Caption devices, making Deaf West's production of Big River, which itself features both deaf and hearing actors, accessible to the deaf.  The I-Caption devices display dialogue and lyrics in real-time, reaching any seat in the theatre, and have a polarized screen so they won't distract people in nearby seats.  There's no additional charge for people wishing to use the devices.
