[Athen] question of captioning vs. ASL

I've been having a discussion with some colleagues over whether captioning
is adequate as a means for access for all deaf or HOH students. Someone
suggested that because of literacy issues some students might need ASL
(spliced into the video in lieu of captioning). Has this issue ever come up
for anyone. It would seem that any students in this demographic with
literary skills that poor would not have the necessary skills for attending
college or university. Just wanted to see what other thought about this.
