An audience at a performance

Technical provision

The technical kit associated with captioning and audio description is obviously central to the service delivery so the equipment will need to be in place and fully tested and functioning in good time.

In addition, the captioner and/or audio describer will need somewhere to sit where they can see and hear the onstage action and be unobtrusive to the audience. In the case of the audio describer, this will almost certainly involve a video feed to a closed space. A Sign Language Interpreter will need to be positioned so that s/he is well lit with good lighting on hands, face and body.
