In this paper, we describe the development of a support tool based on voice recognition technology for deaf students in the lecture environment. The successful prototype is then extended in a pilot scheme to provide additional material for the entire student body. Based on the feedback from the pilot scheme a proposal for a framework to support student interaction with captured lecture content is developed. The work is placed in the context of other developments and issues in the fields of deaf studies and e-learning.
