Every word counts

Online Event | Join us for a coffee and discover online events

Slice yourself a piece of cake, pour some coffee, and join us online to find out all about Stagetext and how we’re making events accessible during the lockdown.

Are you missing out on seeing theatre shows, museum tours, or talks? We’re inviting you to join us and discover how you can watch shows and attend talks by watching them online with captions and subtitles.

Hear from long time subtitle users about their experience watching plays and talks online, find out what shows are available to you, and discover how we have been making all types of events accessible during the lockdown.

We’ll also introduce you how captions and subtitles work in venues, and show you what events are available once theatres, museums, and galleries are once again open to the public.

 

Coffee Afternoon
Wednesday 24 Feb | 6:30pm
   

Deepa Shastri, Stagetext's Project Manager, invites you to join her chat with Stagetext's CEO, Melanie Sharpe, and long time subtitle user Nigel Smith.
