Captioning Awareness Week 2016
Stagetext, the leading captioning charity for the arts and cultural sectors, will host its second Captioning Awareness Week from 14 to 19 November 2016.
The week aims to raise awareness of captioning and live subtitling in cultural venues, which give deaf, deafened and hard of hearing audiences equal access to arts events such as theatre plays, musicals, museum talks and tours and literary festivals.
Theatres, arts venues and caption users are also being encouraged to pledge their support by ‘putting their name in the frame’. Venues, organisations and caption users are being asked to download a special Captioning Awareness Week frame from the Stagetext website, write their or their organisation’s name in it, take a selfie of them holding it and share it on Twitter and Facebook using the hashtag #CAPaware16.
