Sign language captioning

The conference language is UK English, we consider sign language to be a separate and distinct visual language and so the closest alternative accessibility technology would be real time captioning. If a request for captioning is received at the time of registration then we will provide this service, we will make a statement on the registration system as to the availability of captioning so that no-one is misled – the only reason that captioning would not be provided is that the price would mean the conference would run at a deficit. Our preferred remote Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) service is Caption First based on their netCAPTION service.
