A team of Georgia Institute of Technology researchers have created an app that turns text to speech and bungs it into the eyeline.

It all happens in not far from real time and suggests that people could use it without too much delay or interruption.

“This system allows wearers like me to focus on the speaker’s lips and facial gestures,” said School Of Interactive Computing professor Jim Foley.

“If hard-of-hearing people understand the speech, the conversation can continue immediately without waiting for the caption. However, if I miss a word, I can glance at the transcription, get the word or two I need and get back into the conversation.”
