Stagetext are pleased to announce we will be working with MyClearText in our delivery of live subtitles across the arts and culture sector.
The agreement will see MyClearText delivering live subtitling services to a number of Stagetext’s existing arts clients, including for talks and tours at museums and galleries. The new arrangement will allow Stagetext to focus more on securing new clients, widening awareness of all our services, as well as advocating for stronger access in more venues.
Melanie Sharpe, Stagetext CEO, said: “Not only are we excited to be working closer with MyClearText, who have always shared our values on access, we’re excited by the opportunity to increase our productivity, strengthen our position in the sector, and widen our existing delivery methods with the use of new technologies.
“By working with MyClearText, we are opening ourselves up to the prospect of new innovations, new clients, new technology, but most importantly a newly increased ability to provide more live subtitled events to the one in six of us who are d/Deaf, deafened, or hard of hearing.
“MyClearText share our values for excellence, customer service, and best practice when delivering live subtitling. We both use only the best speech-to-text reporters, who know that live subtitling accuracy is paramount when working with d/Deaf, deafened and hard of hearing people.
“This new model of delivery will enable Stagetext be more flexible and robust, while ensuring a sustainable model of access provision.”
