Accessibility Captioning Open-Captioned Live Theatre

Open-Captioned Live Theatre

Our guest this week is our friend Vicki Turner, whose career as court reporter and CART provider began in 1980. Vicki founded Turner Reporting & Captioning Services in 2005 and soon after provided Las Vegas with its first open-captioned theatre performance. Her list of theatre captioning credits continues to grow, as does her passion for spreading awareness of the importance and benefit in providing accessibility to Hard of Hearing (HoH) and deaf patrons. By providing open-captioned live theatre, Vicki makes it possible for a person to fully participate in their life experience and not feel isolated from the hearing world.
