CAPTIONING

Captioning converts the spoken word, song, sound effects and offstage noises into text that provides people with hearing loss access to live performance.  At the Young Vic, our captioning is delivered as a  speech-to-text transcription (STT). 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. Complimentary tickets are available for accompanying carer.

Our upcoming 2021/22 captioned performances are as follows: 
Hamlet: Thu 4 Nov, 7pm
Best of Enemies: Thu 6 Jan 2022, 7.30pm
