Visually impaired have chance to experience eclipse thanks to Georgia Tech

- Georgia Tech has teamed up with AT&T to help visually impaired people experience the total solar eclipse.

They will use special glasses that will stream video to a remote agent.

That agent will then to the wearer what the camera is seeing, in real time.

They will also be able to listen to a data-based sound track developed by the Georgia Tech Sonification Lab and based on past eclipse data.

Georgia Tech will also livestream a version of the Sonification soundtrack.
