Close Captions and Subtitles

Captioning Awareness Week: showcasing subtitled work

Captioning Awareness Week 2020

We’ve teamed up with the charity StageTEXT to champion Captioning Awareness Week this November celebrating the theme, Armchair Access to the arts and culture.

Subtitles really do matter and it is amazing how many people need them. Did you know that over 20% of all BBC iPlayer viewers always use subtitles?

Accessibility is something that is very important to us. We believe everyone should be able to experience theatre, that’s why we are hosting a week with a bumper selection of captioned performances.

For Captioning Awareness Week we are encouraging all our creatives to share footage of work with subtitles, even if just for a limited time.

We are also making our captioning team available to any creative who wants to get their work subtitled but doesn’t know where to start. Our team can help you quickly and inexpensively, just get in touch and share the footage with us:

Experience new subtitled work during Captioning Awareness Week during November and beyond on Scenesaver.
