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. 

If you require captioning, please register your access requirements with us to book the best access seats at concessionary rates for the below performances online.

Our upcoming captioned performances are as follows:  

A Face in the Crowd: Thu 26 Sep, 7.30pm & Sat 05 Oct, 2.30pm. 

Girl in the Machine: Wed 23 Oct, 7.45pm. 

The Little Foxes: Tue 17 Dec, 7.30pm & Sat 4 Jan, 2.30pm. 

Punch: Mon 17 Mar, 7.30pm & Wed 26 Mar, 2.30pm.
