STAGETEXT Captioned Performances
STAGETEXT delivers open captioned performances. Captioning is a way of converting the spoken word into visible text that provides people with a hearing loss with access to live performance. Captions produced by a computer and a display unit installed on or near the stage enable people with hearing loss to understand what is said when it is said. A captioned performance is delivered live by a captioner trained by STAGETEXT.
STAGETEXT provides open captioning. This is a form of universal access enabling people with a hearing loss to enjoy theatre on an equal basis with their hearing peers. Open captions also include sound effects and offstage noises. For more information and to view audience feedback visit www.stagetext.org
The best view of the STAGETEXT Captioned box is in the centre Stalls and centre Arena.
