Key Info & Accessibility

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.


You can see a full list of sessions that we will be transcribing here

British Sign Language Interpreters

A number of sessions will be made accessible to Deaf people via the presence of British Sign Language interpreters, who will live translate speech. Although our budget means that we cannot hire interpreters for every session, we have identified several sessions that are likely to be very popular.

Those sessions are:

  • TWT Opening Rally: The Struggle for a Socialist Future, Tuesday September 1st, 8-9.30pm
  • Solidarity and Recovery in the Cultural Sector, Saturday September 5th, 2.30-4pm
  • Black Lives Matter and the Left, Sunday September 6th, 7.30-9pm
  • Transformative Economics Post-Covid: Demanding the Basics, Saturday September 19th 12-1pm
  • Decades of Labour and Anti-Racism: A history of Struggle and Hope, Sunday 20th September 20th, 5-7pm

Screen Readers

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:

  • We demand that politics becomes inclusive and accessible for disadvantaged and oppressed groups.
  • We expect everyone – be they staff, volunteer, partner, participant or other – to treat each other with respect, understanding and decency.
  • We approach each other with a caring and considerate attitude.
  • We look after one another.
  • We value each and every person’s contribution to The World Transformed equally, however large or small.
  • We recognise that each and every person who contributes both belongs to, and is a valued part of the TWT community.
  • We do not tolerate behaviour which is discriminatory, aggressive, exclusionary or abusive.
  • We recognise that all of us are on a political journey and won’t get everything right all the time. We work together to create a supportive environment in which people can learn and grow from mistakes.
  • We acknowledge that, due to the pandemic, all of us are having to adjust to digital forms of organising and meeting. We are patient with each other as we navigate this new context.

The World Transformed reserves the right to reprimand and, if necessary, expel anyone who violates the above Code of Conduct.
