At Xander, we use AR to enhance daily, in-person communication for individuals, families, and teams affected by hearing loss.
We all have a need to understand and be understood.
1.5 billion people worldwide suffer from hearing loss. Not being able to clearly hear what others are saying prevents understanding, which can be frustrating for everyone involved. Straining to have conversations creates daily aggravation and over time, hearing loss can cause people to withdraw and become isolated.
Xander’s vision is to create augmented understanding. We use AR (augmented reality) to enhance in-person conversations to create deeper connections.
XanderGlasses Can Help
XanderGlasses translate speech into text and display captions of what others are saying in real-time.
They're powered by Vuzix Shield smart glasses which are lightweight, comfortable, and feel natural. The caption display is inobtrusive, allowing the wearer to follow conversations while looking directly at the speaker and surroundings. XanderGlasses allow people who are hard of hearing to clearly understand who is speaking to them, whether at home, work, or in a noisy public venue. This helps people feel more confident and relaxed during conversations.
