Captioning makes our art accessible to people who are deaf and hard of hearing. Open and Closed Captioning can be presented via a variety of platforms to offer a text translation of auditory elements such as dialogue, sound effects and music.
Focusing on theatrical captioning, including concepts and themes that apply to any cultural environment, this workshop will:
- present a survey of captioning options currently utilized in Chicago
- define elements and standards that facilitate the best patron experience
- provide instruction and best practices for implementing a captioning program at your organization, including the creation of cost-effective DIY solutions
