A university in France experimented with how to use technology to make classroom lectures accessible for Deaf students. They used automated speech recognition software to provide a transcription of the professor’s lecture. A hearing student in the class then reviewed the auto-generated text and corrected any errors. The Deaf or hard of hearing student was then able to read the corrected text on their own computer during the lecture.
