    • Rich, I haven’t been doing transcripts for a while because the stats showed that nobody was really reading them at all and they were very expensive. There have been a few times when people have reached out and wanted to share it with those with accessible issues and I’ve had it transcribed. If this is one of those for you that you’d like to share with someone who cannot hear, let me know by emailing vicki at coolcatteacher dot com and I’ll make it happen!
