Booking a Lipspeaker
Remember to book as far in advance as possible, preferably two to three weeks.
Please provide an emergency telephone number for a lipspeaker, in case of delay.
Lipspeakers need to know:
– Date, time, place and nature of the job
– As much background information as possible (supporting papers and special jargon/acronyms sent beforehand helps preparation)
– Rates of pay and conditions of service, including details of rest breaks, mealtimes and lengths of sittings, wherever possible
– Full details of invoicing arrangements
This information should be sent in writing following a telephone booking. The lipspeaker should also confirm acceptance of the job in writing.
Fees may still be required if a booking is cancelled.
