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 2022 Captioned performances are as follows:  
Oklahoma!: Thu 9 Jun, 7.30pm
The Secretaries: Wed 1 Jun – Sat 11 Jun 
Chasing Hares: Thu 4 Aug, 7.30pm 
Who Killed My Father: Thu 22 Sep, 7.30pm
Mandela: Thu 15 Dec, 2022 & Thu 5 Jan, 2023, 7.30pm

For the best experience, please let us know when you book one of the above performances that you want to take advantage of our captioning offer.
