Mahon tribunal…

UPDATE: TRANSCRIPTS ARE AVAILABLE HERE

UPDATE: TRANSCRIPTS ARE AVAILABLE HERE

Two things.

1. Tribunal transcripts cannot be copied and pasted. I asked the tribunal why, and was told it was in case someone modified them. That does not make any sense, it is a public tribunal, paid for by the public. If I wanted to modify them I could just retype them incorrectly or podcast them. I still would not be able to modify the originals on the tribunal website. It would be helpful to be able to copy and paste extracts, rather than go through the process of re-typing.

I also asked who owned the transcripts, and was assured the tribunal did. But who are Premier Realtime Captioning, and what role do they play?

2. I asked for access to maps which were shown by the Tribunal in public sittings on overhead projections. They are not available to the public. Why? No idea. I don’t know whether the rationale is practical or legal.

I think I will write to Judge Mahon.

  1. Ha! I thought a workaround might be available… I may post all transcripts DRM free… Would it be difficult to email all of them to me? lol

    Can I do it on OS X?
