Every word counts

Stagetext is looking for speech-to-text reporters

Are you a former BBC subtitler? Interested in a new challenge?

Stagetext provides theatre captioning and live subtitling services in museums, galleries and other cultural venues to make their activities accessible to people who are deaf, deafened and hard of hearing.

We are currently looking to increase our pool of freelance speech-to-text reporters/stenographers and are keen to make contact with former BBC subtitlers to join our team of freelancers.

Our Talks Programme works with museums, galleries, literary festivals and other cultural venues around the country to provide live subtitles across a wide range of events, both on site and remotely. This work can be demanding and requires high standards of accuracy and punctuation, plus the ability to spell out words at high speed. 

How to apply

If you’d like to find out more about how you can support this exciting venture, we’d love to hear from you. Please send a CV and covering letter to Deepa Shastri, Stagetext’s Talks Programme Manager at deepa@stagetext.org.
