We develop applications that improve accessibility to stage and screen for people with hearing disabilities and the visually impaired, and for people who need foreign language support.
Our current solution has been developed in close cooperation with Riksteatern (The National Touring Theatre of Sweden) and the users. It is now available at both large and small theatres using smartphones for closed captioning and LED displays or on-stage projection for open captioning.
The solution has an option, also based on the users personal smartphones, for pre-recorded audio description. Based on this platform, we have developed a system for screen audio description and spoken subtitles.
In order to be able to keep up with the rapid development of smartphones and other hardware, all our systems are based on standard hardware components. One of our next steps is to develop a captioning solution for virtual display glasses.
Dogood AB was founded in 2009. Since then we have created access to more than 20 theatre productions and over 1000 users have used our app.
