Recording of Subtitling Digital Content

10 February, 2022 @ 11:00 am 12:30 pm

Book this recording to learn at a time that suits you.

This recording explores why subtitling is important, and how to do it well. It will help you incorporate subtitling and deaf accessibility into your work.

Oliver Webster | Programme Systems Manager | Stagetext

Oli graduated Durham University in 2015 and took his first job in marketing, where he then decided that he really wanted to work in the arts. As along-time user of captions and subtitles, when a job opening came up at Stagetext in 2017 he knew that was the perfect fit for him. Since then, Oli has been combining his personal knowledge of subtitles with the expert knowledge of Stagetext and top subtitlers.
