Hearing and Visually Impaired

DVS logo

The Peterborough Community Theatre is pleased to offer Descriptive Video Services for the visually impaired. The service provides descriptive narration of key visual elements via personal headsets, which is then inserted within the natural pauses in dialogue to help low-vision viewers to better understand the story. Key visual elements are those which viewers with vision loss would ordinarily miss and include actions, costumes, gestures, facial expressions, scene changes, and onscreen text.

Our theatre currently has 4 headsets that provide DVS.

We also offer 3 headsets for the hearing impaired, plus 2 neck loops for those with T-coil hearing aids.

All equipment for the hearing and visually impaired is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
