Every word counts

What caption users say

Stagetext regularly receives messages from deaf, deafened and hard of hearing theatregoers saying how much they love captioned performances and how the service has changed their life. For many, it means they can now enjoy a show with their hearing friends and family, laugh or cry at the same time as everyone else, and chat about the production afterwards.
