Captioning Awareness Week
Scenesaver is delighted to partner with StageTEXT for Captioning Awareness Week.
Captioning Awareness Week 2023 takes place from Monday 13th to Sunday 19th November, and is an annual campaign to raise awareness of captioning and deaf access to the arts and cultural sector.
Scenesaver has championed accessibility since launch and this is the third year we have teamed up with StageTEXT to support their campaign.
Live performances such as theatre, offer an opportunity to connect with emotions, stories, and creativity on a profound level. However, for many people who are deaf, deafened or hard of hearing, this connection may be disrupted due to the lack of accessibility options such as captions or live subtitles.
Captioning really does matter. It makes the arts a more welcoming and accessible place, making a huge difference to individuals and families, which is why Scenesaver is championing subtitling during 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: firstname.lastname@example.org
