Zoe Moores is a Research Fellow at the University of Surrey and a Visiting Lecturer at the University of Roehampton. She holds a PhD in Translation Studies in which she explored how respeaking could be introduced into the live event setting in the UK to broaden the access provided both for d/Deaf, deafened and hard of hearing audience members and the wider audience, and what additional skills and training would be required for those involved. She worked closely with the charity Stagetext to co-ordinate the project. At Surrey, she is part of the SMART Project, investigating how multilingual access can be provided through interlingual respeaking and what training different language professionals might require to develop this new skill. Zoe is a member of GALMA, the Galician Observatory for Media Accessibility, and is involved in a number of accessibility-related projects. She continues to subtitle and respeak on a freelance basis.
