STT is similar to live subtitles. A highly-trained professional uses a specially designed phonetic keyboard and software to transcribe the actors’ words verbatim. The text will appear on the caption unit slightly after it is spoken.
Relaxed Performances welcome people with learning disabilities and/or sensory and communication impairments. During the show, audience members should feel comfortable making noise and moving around as and when they need to in a friendly environment.
