For the 2013 season, OSF will caption a total of 39 performances, up from 13 in 2010. Attendance in the captioned section at these performances has ranged from 0 to 27 patrons, a number that we, and OSF, would like to see grow. OSF offers reduced pricing for seating in the captioned section and, depending on ticket availability, will accept requests for captioning performances that are not automatically captioned.
Here is the website location of OSF that deals with Captioning and also contains the current schdule of captioned and signed performances: http://www.osfashland.org/accessibility-information.aspx OR-CAP is hoping that OSF will provide larger caption displays that are visible to a larger proportion, or all, of the audience and therefore don’t require special seating and can be used by anyone including those who did not know about caption availability. We have also asked them to make the process of ordering tickets for the caption section more straight-forward.
