The device also allows people to record and better understand conversation transcripts for later reference

A wearable captioning device called the Q system aims to help those who have suffered from hearing loss experience the full range of sounds that their ears cannot hear. The device conveys the emotions and tone of their conversation partner's speech, rather than just the text of what is said.

At first glance, the device seems to be a stand-in for an interpreter: it displays text using voice recognition software that translates spoken language and transports it to the wearable via Bluetooth. The text appears on a screen embedded in the palm of the wearable band.
