Webinar: Captions for Event Centers and Live SportsSports fans everywhere know that you can love watching the game from the comfort of your own home, but there’s just something about the experience of making it to the stadium in person and cheering with other fans that can’t be beat. And it’s important that that game experience is one that all fans can enjoy.

Captions make sporting events, concerts, conferences, and theater performances accessible for the 1 in 5 Americans who are deaf or hard of hearing. By captioning song lyrics, stadium announcements, dialogue, or player and scoring information, fans never have to miss a second of action.

Increasingly fans of all kinds, not just sports fans, have shown a preference for venues that prioritize accessibility. Recent research has shown that people are 31% more likely to attend a live event if they know it will have captions. And with stadium events likely to see another surge in popularity this coming spring and summer, that’s a tactical advantage no good team would let go to waste.

But what’s the best way to offer captions in your venue? While making your event accessible isn’t difficult, knowing what options will work for your specific stadium, arena, or event center means knowing what goes into providing accessibility for all.

Join us on Thursday, Feb. 24, at 1:30 PM ET for a free webinar on captioning for event centers and live sports. “Captions for Event Centers and Live Sports” will discuss, among other topics:

  • The best practices for meeting event accessibility requirements
  • Why caption accuracy improves the overall fan experience
  • The ease in displaying captions on arena and stadium scoreboards and ribbon boards or streaming captions to attendees’ mobile devices
