ACT will offers the Figaro MobiTxt® Closed Captioning System for audience members who are Deaf/ Hard of Hearing (HH).
Due to issues with reconfiguring the system, we are temporarily unable to offer closed captioning for A Christmas Carol. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. We expect to be able to offer closed captioning soon.
The Figaro system supports closed captioning on individual tablets attached to a “gooseneck” stand on the arm of the patron’s seat anywhere in the theatre. The captioning will be run manually by an operator at each performance so there will be no delay in the display. Formatting, font size and color can be chosen from a selection of standard settings by the patron, and the display will only be visible to the individual using it and will not disrupt those seated nearby.
Patrons wishing to utilize the CC system should purchase tickets as they normally would, then call or email the Ticket Office to reserve a tablet at email@example.com or 206.292.7676 (12:00pm–5:00pm, Tues–Fri). Tablets may also be requested upon arrival at the theatre. A form of ID must be presented in exchange for the tablet and will be returned when the tablet is returned after the show.
