ASSISTIVE LISTENING SYSTEM
Many Festival venues have an induction hearing loop system or FM radio system available.
Selected Festival venues have open captioning.
Open captioning is an accurate live text display of a performance in its entirety, including dialogue, ad libs, asides, song lyrics, musical descriptions and other sound effects, displayed on large screens at the side of the stage.
AUSLAN SIGN LANGUAGE INTERPRETATION
Selected Festival events are Auslan-interpreted. If you require accessible seating, please email email@example.com or call (02) 9256 4200.
Auslan-interpreted performances are for audiences who are Deaf and use Australian Sign Language (Auslan) as their primary means of communication. Experienced Auslan interpreters stand to the side of the stage and translate what the performers are saying into Auslan, signing the dialogue live. Audience members requiring this service are seated in the section closest to the interpreter to ensure good sightlines.
