Live captioning and subtitles
ArtsFront are hosting the “Little Lunch On Line” series of daily zoom meets to share ideas and resources, and plan our actions in responding to the pandemic, the climate crisis and whatever global emergency awaits us next.
Artists and organisations across the country will also have the opportunity to take a turn at hosting some Little Lunches and provide a varied program. Hosts will organise guest speakers for their lunches and get a chance to dig a bit deeper into what's going in their community.
Arts Front is providing live captioning and Auslan signing to improve the accessibility of the Little Lunches for each session, ensuring access for both panellists and participants.
The Captioners are all arts practitioners that have offered their skills to provide this service. Introductions can be made to the Captioner team, if you would like to provide this service on your next online event.
- Captioners are paid $50 per hour, directly to the person who will invoice on event completion.
- Two Captioners will be rostered on for each session and assigned 15 minute blocks to be alternated.

Captioning on Zoomby Mana Ogawa, Tuesday 31 March 6:15pm31st March, 2020
Once assigned captioning, do we have to do anything on our end or just start typing?
I am scheduled for tomorrow, and would love to know if there is extra information on the interview and guest speaker? (So I don’t type anything incorrectly).

Live Captioning Q'sby Emily O'Connell, Monday 30 March 6:48pm30th March, 2020
I had some questions about the live captioning, so I am posting them in the group in case it's of use to others.
- During the Zoom sessions, each participant shares an acknowledgment of country / also may use traditional language & references. I wouldn't want to make a grammatical error and cause offence, how would you suggest going about this in terms of transcribing?
- Does the text need to be word-for-word, including 'um, like...' etc or is it okay if in order to keep up with the groups conversations, we summarise at times?
- During the live captioning, would you prefer we write the name of the person speaking, or is it okay without. E.G. Sally: ‘Hello everyone’ or just ‘Hello everyone’.
- Will the host re-assign captioning to the second 'live captioner' rostered during the zoom session after the first 15-min is up? Assuming the conversations will keep rolling and so the second captioner will need to find a point to pick up from.

Please note: Your shift will not be confirmed unless you accept it. If you do not accept by close of business (5 pm AEDT) the day before we will reallocate the shift.
If you are unable to do a shift, if you would like to swap shifts or you have a question please assign an action item to me in a comment (i.e. type an at symbol (@) or a plus symbol (+) and start typing my email address (email@example.com)). This will notify me by email that you have left a comment I need to respond to.

About the fee/rate and other payment informationby Elliott Bledsoe, Saturday 28 March 6:50pm28th March, 2020
Arts Front is offering $50/captioner/LLOL Lunch, with 2 captioners rostered on for each lunch. This is for a period up to 1 hour (some sessions will finish exactly on the 30 minutes and others may run a little over). How does that sound to everyone?
Two captioners per LLOL event
As there will be two captioners per even each captioner will caption for approximately 15 minutes. The two captioners will be rostered on to either session 1 (the first 15 minutes) or session 2 (the second 15 minutes). If a session runs longer the 2 captioners will be assigned in order for 15-minute sessions during the extra time.
Start and end times
Both captioners are expected to join the LLOL event no later than 15 minutes before the event is due to start. Both captioners are expected to stay on the Zoom conference until the event concludes.
