While way better than speech-to-text softwares, sometimes I really suck at transcribing the human voice even in my own language...

As you might have noticed, I am beginning to transcribe the part before your point of 9 something minutes, okay? I am making sections of 10 minute portions which we can delete when the whole thing is transcribed, but are fine while constantly adding text ... I think its would be fine when we make "CA:" and "FZ" bold for better reading experience, whaddyathink? --Propellerkuh 09:46, 11 December 2008 (PST)

That's great. I hope other dudes will join shortly.

Hi, Sorry about the conflict. I hope you find my corrections of your transcription ok? I think of re-inserting a little bit of line space between Q and Answer again, because it gets more readable when you have the text proportioned. --Propellerkuh 14:06, 11 December 2008 (PST)

No probs. Okay for the little space.

Thanks for your work and corrections, I think it does look quite good.

Unfortunately, it seems nobody's joining, so I'm afraid we might have to finish this by ourselves...

So what, ain't we used to that kind of things? I'm off to minutes 50 to end AND d/loaded some other audios from the same station ;-) --Propellerkuh 06:30, 12 December 2008 (PST)

Oh my! You are bringing some more lumber. I may not be very available this weekend, we'll see :-p

Sorry Prope, I didn't mention where I was going on. I just saw that you were editing a part I was already transcribing (very slowly). So I just pasted my ongoing draft as is. Hope you don't mind.

Maroual 12:30, 14 December 2008 (PST)

that's just fine, never mind. I'm easing off too a little bit, gotta save my eyesight for later

Soooooo, huffa-puffa, I'm ready with this lenghty thing. It was the longest thing I ever transcribed. It would be nice if you and Duncan and whoever is better at listening to raspy voices in faraway places croaking through rusty phone wires overlaid with static noise looped into my hard hearing ears overlooked my scribblings. Some of the harder to understand sentences didn't get through to me. Though it was a nice satisfying experience, to once again add to the Zappa Wiki.

Congrats man B-) Sorry if I've been lazy these days, I will perform a complete review as soon as I can. Your speech recognition has to be better than mine as I even do a lot of mistakes transcribing French. So in any case, a third person (at least) is needed to complete this review.
