Captioning Awareness Week 2020

Scenesaver is delighted to partner with StageTEXT for Captioning Awareness Week 2020 on the theme Armchair Access.

Captioning Awareness Week 2020


Subtitles really do matter. They have a huge impact on people’s lives and their families. They open the door to enjoying and understanding theatre, which is why Scenesaver is championing subtitling during Captioning Awareness Week.

Fact: Did you know that over 20% of all BBC iPlayer viewers always use subtitles?

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:

You’ll be able to experience our bumper collection of subtitled performances during Captioning Awareness Week from 9 to 15 November and beyond on Scenesaver.
