Caption: Samsung is working to enable its TVs to recognize sign language for commands like "turn on the television."
"Samsung's TV lineup is about to become a lot more accessible for people with low vision or hearing issues. The company on Wednesday said all of its 2020 QLED and Neo QLED models will come with features like being able to move captions to avoid blocking other text on a video and the ability zoom in on a sign language window to see it better.
Along with "Closed Caption and Position" and "Sign Language Zoom," Samsung also showed off the ability to invert colors on a menu. It leaves the video as it is but makes it easier for people who are low vision to see the menu options. "It looks simple but to enable this technology, we had to start by re-engineering the chipset," Samsung said. Its SeeColors feature lets people who are color blind see colors, and its Learn Remote Control feature that verbally tells users what each button on the remote controls. Many of the features have been available on older TV sets."
