I was in London on Thursday where I met Tabitha Allum, the Chief Executive of Stagetext. We discussed the progress of Stagetext’s work on ‘community captioning’ – encouraging amateur theatre groups to use live captioning for the deaf, deafened and hard of hearing people at their performances. Stagetext now has captioning displays which can be used by amateur groups in London and is seeking funding to enable more training of volunteer captioners within amateur societies. We talked about the potential to include sessions on captioning within the skills-sharing events in our new RSC Open Stages project. We also discussed subtitling the library of Running Your Group LIVE and Running Your Group weekly video webcasts.
