Rear-window captioning system displays reversed captions on a light-emitting diode (LED) text display screen that could be fastened to the back of a theater seat. The plexiglass device looks like a rear-view mirror that fits into a viewer's cup holder and reflects words from a display board in the back of the theater so that they appear superimposed on the movie screen. The reflective panels are portable and adjustable, enabling the caption user to sit anywhere in the theater. The 'rear-window' reflectors are made available at the theater's customer service desk.
Theater can be outfitted for this 'rear-window' captioning system for around $10,000.
