Since the launch of the MCA Monitor on May 3, several participants have contacted us to request the transcript. I'm happy to say that the transcript and photos are now available. Interestingly, we got the transcript faster than usual by sending the audio files to India where, we are told, the transcribing was done by women who work from home on their own schedule, accepting jobs as and when they wish. The arrangement worked well for us and we were pleased that the MCA Monitor could contribute in a small way to India's remarkable off-shore services boom.
