Captitles subtitles in theater

Our story

In 2017, we have recognized a gap in the theater world. The birth of "Subtitles for theatre" app was the result of this recognition—a pioneering solution for theaters globally, aiming to make performances more accessible and engaging. But, as the pandemic's shadow loomed large, the app met an untimely hiatus.

In 2023, as the world changed and technology leaped forward, we saw an opportunity not just to revive but to revolutionize. The advancements in Artificial Intelligence opened avenues that once seemed insurmountable. And so, Captitles app emerged from the crucible—a reimagined tool forged with the latest in AI, carrying forward the legacy of its predecessor but with amplified capabilities.

Join us on this renewed journey, as we blend the timelessness of theater with the cutting-edge prowess of today's technology, making each performance a universal experience.
