Service description:
Stagetext is a registered charity which provides captioning and live subtitling services to theatres and other arts venues to make their activities accessible to people who are deaf, deafened or hard of hearing.

Theatre - captions are similar to television subtitles. The actors’ words appear on screens, placed next to the stage or in the set, at the same time as they are spoken or sung. Unlike opera surtitles for hearing audiences, captions include additional information such as speaker names, sound effects and offstage noises.

Talks - live subtitles are used in museums, galleries and other cultural venues for talks, tours and lectures. The speakers’ words are displayed for talks and lectures, or appear on handheld tablets for tours.

Digital – online content, including trailers, recorded events and live streams are made accessible through subtitling.

Visit the 'What's on' page of their website to find out about accessible theatre and talks coming up across the UK.
