Thanks, Philip.  We'll keep working on it.  Slow but sure - what we are doing now - is not a bad start, while we work at making it better.

Like so many things, it is very difficult when you first start, but it becomes much easier with practice.

when I was a shy teenager (take the minute hand off your watch - we're talking a looooong time ago) I had a beautiful poster showing a small sail ship at anchor in a pretty Cornish Harbor at sunset. And the words on it said ' A ship is safe in harbour, but that is not what ships were made for.'   I hope all our new transcribers will enjoy such daring enterprise and set sail on our slightly rough seas.  Anchors aweigh - nothing ventured nothing gained!! ;D

The US logs generally are more challenging; I think we should be proud that we are learning to deal with them.
As Philip says, we are pioneers in this field. We will get there.

As a great philosopher once said, "was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?" 
We will find a way to do this sort of thing easily and efficiently.

One of my favourite sentences ever (along with the follow-ups from Otter and Boon: "Germans?", "Forget it, he's rolling.")  ;D ;D

"Every Halloween the trees are full of underwear,
Every Spring the toilets explode"   

This so perfectly describes angered resignation at something that can't be stopped -

I love that movie!
