Guests with Visual Impairments
Guests with visual impairments may make use of the headset soundtrack that describes the on-screen action in the historic film Williamsburg—The Story of a Patriot. Ask the usher for assistance in setting up the headset.
Guests with Hearing Impairments
Closed-captioned televisions are available at the Williamsburg Inn, Williamsburg Lodge, Williamsburg Woodlands Hotel & Suites, and Governor’s Inn. Battery-operated strobe light fire alarms, TDD machines, amplifier handsets, and shake-awake alarm clocks are available at all hotel front desks.
A printed synopsis of the orientation film Williamsburg—The Story of a Patriot is available at the Visitor Center, as are headsets with adjustable volume control. The East Theater has a rear-screen projection system that allows guests to see a captioned version of the film. Please ask the usher for assistance.
Headsets with adjustable volume control are also available for programs in the Hennage Auditorium of the DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum, the Kimball Theatre, and the Virginia Room of the Williamsburg Lodge.
Upon request, Colonial Williamsburg will contract with a signing interpreter to accompany hearing-impaired guests through the Revolutionary City. Requests for this service must be made at least two weeks in advance through the Visitor Center Administrative Office at (757) 220-7205.
