Disclaimer Regarding Program Transcripts

Unless noted otherwise, HLA Whatcom program transcriptions are provided during our meetings by TypeWell transcribers.  Such transcriptions are posted to this website with some editing, as well as removal of remarks that are unrelated to the main program presentation.  Unlike Real-Time Captioning (CART or similar) which is a verbatim transcription of events, TypeWell  (http://typewell.com/) is a speech-to-text program to aid meaning-for-meaning interpretation.  The TypeWell transcriber uses a standard laptop computer and a series of abbreviations while transcribing events as close to verbatim as possible. 

Unless otherwise noted, visual media accompanying program presentations such as slides, Power Point, or similar media are not available.
