Xander Captioning Glasses
Xander designs simple, wearable assistive technology to simplify communication, enhance understanding, restore confidence, and empower people with hearing challenges in daily conversations.
Sight for Sound
Our first product, Xander Captioning Glasses, or "XanderGlasses," uses the principle "sight for sound." In essence, when you can't hear what someone is saying, the glasses let you see what they're saying.
The product has one primary purpose: to assist people who have hearing challenges, enabling them to understand speech and participate in conversations in a natural way. XanderGlasses translate speech to text in real-time, and project accurate captions of conversations that are visible to the wearer only.
Our glasses are powered by Vuzix, a pioneer in wearable computing, waveguide optics, and protective smart eyewear, to deliver a simple, reliable, and safe solution that protects privacy.
Simple. Reliable. Private.
The Xander Captioning Experience
There When You Need Them
Convenient & Natural Interactions
Smartphone apps can provide captions, but to read them, you have to look down at your phone instead of looking at the person speaking. XanderGlasses are hands-free and project semi-transparent captions outward in your field of vision. This allows you to focus on the person speaking and your surroundings. Since the captions display in real-time, you can refer to them as much or as little as needed, all while paying attention to the other person's facial expressions and social cues.
