Hello  @neilw ‌, support for students who are Deaf or hard of hearing is going to depend a lot on what audio and video you are using and how are sharing it with your students. If you are using the default Canvas video tools available in the rich text editor then you can caption those videos using these instructions: 

How do I add captions to new or uploaded videos in Canvas as an instructor? 

If you are using Canvas Studio then there are additional options to caption videos an option to automatically generate a caption file that you would then need to edit. Most other media platforms also offer captioning functionality.
