Year published: 2021

Imagine not being able to enjoy a gig online or take part in a Q&A with your favourite artist simply because:

  • Promotional artwork containing key details wasn’t readable.
  • The event didn’t include captioning or another way to participate without relying on audio.
  • There was no way of knowing what the artist and the venue looked like.
  • Graphics displayed on the live stream were not legible

In this guide, produced with input from fans and artists, we provide you with some quick solutions to break down the barriers that online gigs or events can create for Deaf and disabled audiences.

Whether you are a DIY promoter or a large venue planning a video series, this guide contains useful tips on making what you do as accessible as possible.
