Hearing loss should not prevent anyone from getting out and about. Fortunately access for people with a hearing loss is steadily improving and they are ways of managing tricky situations as you will find out at our annual conference. Travelling, attending talks or enjoying the theatre is now much more accessible and stress free than before. We have a range of presenters from different organisations to inform what they are doing to improve the experience of deaf, deafened and hard of hearing people using their services including British Airways, the National Theatre and the Victoria and Albert Museum. We will be joined by award winning blogger deafieblogger who will be talking about her #subtitledcinema campaign to increase subtitle showings at the cinema. Ed Rex of https://rexyedventures.com/ aka thedeaftraveller will also be sharing his experiences travelling in the UK and the work he has been involved into improve accessibility for deaf people. There will also be information on how events such as the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Museum talks can now accommodate deafened people through the use of technology. Stagetext will be presenting on their latest news about captioned shows, talks and digital. Both the morning and afternoon sessions will include panel discussions with an opportunity to ask questions and share experiences. As usual there will be a range of stalls available for attendees to gather more information to help with your hearing loss and ask questions, and plenty of time to meet other deaf people. Our conferences are fully accessible with Communication Support including Hearing Loop, Lipspeaker with Sign, and STTR (Speech to Text Reporter) projected onto a large screen and also to tablets for those with sight difficulties. Confirmed Speakers include Lilian Greenwood MP - NADP President - Chair House of Commons Transport Select Committee Nick Tedd - Travel and Empowerment - blogger who travels Stuart Tarn - British Airways Customer Experience Tabitha Allum - National Theatre Zoe Moores - Museums and Talks - University of Roehampton Claire Hill - Edinburgh Festival Fringe - Captioned Performances Brian Ginley - Victoria & Albert Museum Accessibility Team Melanie Sharpe - Stagetext
