Live Captioning for Theatres


Caption, translate, and broadcast live theatre performances across multiple pairs of smart glasses.

How to use our app to subtitle your theatre performances

Live captioning for theatre performances, set up in minutes.

Reading theatre captions can sometimes be a letdown. Many theatres still use in-person captioners, physical screens, or dated captioning smart glasses – all of which is as costly as you might think.

These services are not only time-consuming, but often turn into a huge headache for your audio technicians.

On your phone, or in
a pair of smart glasses.

Our app lets you broadcast real-time captions to multiple devices, across your entire venue. With your stream, you can make every seat an access seat and say goodbye to your older ‘open access’ captioning tech.

I'm telling you, this is a game-changer. During the pandemic, I didn't want to go to the store because everybody's in masks and I lip-read, so I had no idea what anybody was saying. This is amazing.

As much as I love to embrace my deafness and be positive about it, it is a really isolating place at times. You miss out on a lot, and it's a mental journey trying to lip-read. Something like this could really make it so much easier, not just for myself but other people - it's pretty special.
