Would you mind if I express my opinion about your transcription page
because I am not all the computer savvy and found myself wondering just
what was meant by: "Comma-delimited text, Tab-delimited text" This is
just my opinion, but wouldn't it be more user friendly to reword these
to something less technical?
And I also noticed that some of your links open to a file download and a
pdf file. I have always been under the impression that this was a no-no
on freepages sites?
Like I said this is just my opinion...I could be wrong.
