The Festival performances will be accessible for people with functional sensory impairment.
The 65th Festival of Mérida will be fully accessible for people with functional sensory impairment.
On the one hand, hearing loops will be available at all Festival events. Box 3 at the Roman Theatre will be reserved for audience members with special hearing needs. A hearing or induction loop is a sound system that transforms the audio signal everyone else hears into a magnetic field captured by hearing aids and cochlear implants.
People who need to use one must mention such circumstance when purchasing tickets as only Box 3, indicated with an assisted listening sign, will be prepared for this need.
On the other hand, Sunday performances will feature audio description services for the visually impaired.
People requiring this service must also mention such circumstance at the Festival box office to receive the audio description receiver on loan. In this case, affected audience members may sit anywhere in the theatre.
Accessible performances with subtitling and audio description services will be “0” on 9th July, “0” on 16th July, “0” on 31st July, “0” on 30th July, “0” on 6th August, “0” on 20th August and “0” on 27th August.
The Festival of Mérida in Medellín and Festival of Mérida in Cáparra will be equipped with an induction loop system for all performances as well as audio description services.
