Live Captions and Transcripts
For TWT20 we will be using a live transcription software called Otter for some online sessions. At the beginning of these sessions, attendees will be given a link to a live transcript, through which they can follow the conversation.
Additionally, we intend to publish transcripts for a number of sessions, which will be made available for people to download when session recordings are uploaded to YouTube.

TWT will take place across three different digital platforms: Zoom, BigBlueButton and Stream Yard/YouTube. All of these platforms are compatible with common screen readers, such as JAWS and NVDA.
Welcome to The World Transformed 2020. People come to TWT from lots of different walks of life, with different histories and knowledge. It’s important that everyone feels able to contribute - whether it’s your first political event or your hundredth - and that everyone’s contributions are taken seriously. This is a pluralist space in which we encourage comradely debate, but bigotry of any kind will be challenged. We are all here to learn - both from the speakers, and from each other - and we must be kind to each other as we do so.
We recognise that a positive and inclusive environment is both a beautiful and fiercely effective tool for social engagement and political struggle. With this in mind we - participants, volunteers, organisers and speakers - agree to the following principles of action:
The World Transformed reserves the right to reprimand and, if necessary, expel anyone who violates the above Code of Conduct.
