Cowboys Stadium Kicks off New Assistive Service

Dallas Cowboys logoNo matter how you feel about the Dallas Cowboys — you have to give them credit. From [Deaf Network of Texas](http://deafnetwork.com).
[Softeq Development Corporation](http://softeq.com/) has implemented DURATEQ Live with Intelligent Access mobile captioning, audio description, and assistive listening service at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. On a recent Sunday, guests who are deaf, hard of hearing, blind or have low vision could access DURATEQ Assistive Technology Version (ATV) handhelds to enjoy the first NFC Playoff game in the stadium.
“The Dallas Cowboys Football Club contacted us to build a universal experience for all their fans, and we teamed up with Georgia Tech’s wireless captioning specialist Intelligent Access to create a customized assistive technology solution for them,” said Trey Litel, Vice President of Softeq Development Corporation. “The spectacular Dallas Cowboys Stadium has the best technology and now with DURATEQ ATV they have added real time mobile captioning and assistive audio anywhere in the stadium!”
Originally developed for the Walt Disney World theme park, the DURATEQ ATV makes the full game experience available to all guests. Softeq adapted its application to include the Intelligent Access software to add real time mobile captioning to the platform. The device also provides assistive listening of all public address system announcements and assistive audio play by play announcements in English and Spanish. Fully integrated into the existing Dallas Cowboys Stadium captioning infrastructure, the server broadcasts content over the stadium WiFi network and assistive band FM transmitters.
The DURATEQ ATV helps public entertainment venues meet Title II and Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements.
