A New "I-" On Accessibility


Over the past several years, theater lovers with little or no hearing have been able to enjoy several of Broadway’s biggest hits with the implementation of the I-Caption® system, part of the Audien® suite of accessibility services designed and manufactured by Sound Associates, Inc.

Broadway staples such as Wicked, Aladdin, The Lion King and The Book of Mormon have long since realized the benefits of providing on demand services for personal captioning, audio description and even foreign language translation at every performance to any seat in the house. And the trend seems to be growing exponentially.

Just this year Hamilton, Come From Away, School of Rock, Chicago and Phantom of the Opera have added I-Caption® to their list of accommodations, with Hamilton also including D-Scriptive for audio description and Come From Away adding multiple foreign language translations to assist their international patrons; with Dear Evan Hansen, Anastasia and Miss Saigon soon to be added.
But Broadway is not the only place you will find I-Caption®. Sight and Sound Theaters in Lancaster, PA currently offers their patrons captioning, audio description, and even visual subtitles in multiple foreign languages, while the Smith Center in Las Vegas now offers both personal captioning and audio description via the Audien® system for their Broadway Show series.
