Every word counts

Join our free webinars and make your online work accessible

 

Join us this Captioning Awareness Week, 9 - 15 November, for a series of FREE webinars, helping you make your online talks, webinars, and productions fully accessible for d/Deaf, deafened, and hard of hearing audiences.

Stagetext are here to help you navigate the world of online access with a series of talks and discussions. Improve your understanding of how arts organisations are adapting to work online, the impact this is having on supplying d/Deaf access, and the best ways to make your online talks and shows accessible.

All webinars are free to attend and will be available with live subtitles.


If it’s online, it must be subtitled – but what makes it accessible?
Tuesday, 10 November, 2pm
 
Our Programme Systems Manager, Oliver Webster, will help you build on your existing skills and take a more in-depth look on how to ensure your subtitles are fully accessible.
 
Find out how line lengths, timing, size and colour, can all affect how accessible your subtitles are and how this will affect how d/Deaf audiences engage with your work.
 
This is the perfect next step for anyone who has already taken our online digital subtitling training, which is still able for free at stagetext.org/training.
 
 

So, you’re delivering talks and shows online… how does d/Deaf access work?
Wednesday, 11 November, 1pm

Join our Theatre Manager, Olivia Powell, and our Live Subtitling Manager, Courtney Rudge, as they talk you through the differences between producing an accessible live event in-venue and producing a live event online.
 
Learn what needs to be considered for your d/Deaf audiences when producing shows, talks, and events in the new era.
