Pro Football Hall of Fame Launches SignGlasses to Enhance Visitors Experience

The Pro Football Hall of Fame and SignGlasses, LLC launched special smart glasses that include captioning enabling Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing guests the opportunity to more fully experience the Hall’s main theater attractions, “A Game of Life” holographic theater and the spectacular rotating Super Bowl Theater.

“We are excited to make the Hall’s theaters more accessible and provide a more comprehensive Museum experience for all guests. It is humbling to see how impactful this pioneering technology is for Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing guests,” stated Pro Football Hall of Fame Vice President of Exhibits/Museum Services Saleem Choudhry.

This innovative, state-of-the-art technology designed by SignGlasses expands and enhances communication access options in support of Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing individuals. The smart glasses are user friendly and sync with both theaters as guests enter. The Hall has multiple pairs of SignGlasses enabled smart glasses on hands for Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing guests to utilize when they visit.

“The opportunity to work with the team at the Hall and several Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing football fans from the greater Canton area to ensure the Pro Football Hall of Fame offers an inclusive theater experience for the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Community is truly satisfying,” shared Chief Executive Officer of SignGlasses Brandon Arthur. “We are proud to join with the Pro Football Hall of Fame and Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing football fans to launch SignGlasses at the Hall. This joint effort ensures that everyone accessing the “A Game of Life” and Super Bowl theaters have an inclusive and inspirational experience.”

The Hall of Fame and SignGlasses will co-host an Annual Deaf Awareness Day at the Hall in 2020.

This partnership helps amplify the Hall’s continued efforts to be more inclusive. Earlier this year, the Hall began offering American Sign Language (ASL) enhanced Insider Tours for Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing individuals.
