Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART), a service that provides written transcription of oral information, can be helpful to deaf students in a classroom setting, according to an article in The Hill.

Though CART stenographers are often present at public speeches, according to the article, they aren’t always available in classroom settings unless specifically requested.

Transcriptions are available for viewing after the lecture.
