    RiversEditorial provided a very comrehensive transcription service, and in my opinion went over and above in researching the complex, technical content contained within the material to avoid presenting a final document littered with 'unclear', 'n/k'. Very pleasant and good communicator. Thankyou. Sacha - FocusPull Films
