The traditional lecture remains the most common method of teaching and while it is the most convenient from a delivery point of view, it is the least flexible and accessible. This paper responds to the challenge of meeting the needs and access requirements of students with disabilities by urging further adaptations in the learning environment. The aim of this work is to explore the way speech recognition technology can be employed in the University classroom to make lectures more flexible and accessible. The concluding section explores the concept of an ASR model, based on principles derived from studies of human methods of recognition, in order to increase their performance and efficiency.
