I-Caption is a hand-held captioning system for deaf and hearing-impaired theatergoers; the device receives a signal from the master system and displays verbatim the entire text of a show, including lyrics, plus announcements and other information. ShowTrans provides automated, multilingual descriptive commentary for non-English speaking audience members, with continual plot and dialogue information; at the Gershwin, the languages offered are Japanese, Portuguese, French, and Spanish. Audio Description for the Blind offers blind or sight-impaired audience members detailed descriptions of the visual aspects of a production, including choreography, lighting, sets and costumes.
ShowTrans and I-Caption are currently available at the Gershwin, Audio Description for the Blind will be available in approximately one month. Phone 212-582-7678 to reserve any of the NISNA services or for more information.
