We would like to invite you to participate in an online questionnaire to tell us about your experience as a captioner/re-speaker.


This user survey is part of the Insign project, funded by the DG Justice of the European Commission, exploring ways of making European Institutions to become more accessible to Deaf and Hard of Hearing European citizens.


The study is being conducted by Professor Jemina Napier (Principal investigator), Professor Graham H. Turner (Co-investigator) and Robert Skinner (Research Associate) from the Department of Languages & Intercultural Studies at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland, and in collaboration with Designit, a strategic design firm.  


If you decide to participate, you will share with us your past and current experience in your work as captioner/re-speaker. The completion of this survey will take no more than 15 minutes.


Any information or personal details gathered in the course of the study are confidential. The only people that will have access to the information collected will be the research team. No individual will be identified in any publication of the results, although some quotes or transcribed examples of comments may be used.


If you decide to participate, you are free to withdraw from participation in the research at any time without having to give a reason and without consequence. Click the consent option (below) to proceed.

Survey will close 15 March 2014
