OT:just-released phone-call transcript

until yesterday, I believed a "transcript" is a written-down variant of who said what. However, when I downloaded the document, a transcript turned out to be a memo...

this document records the notes and recollections of Situation Room Duty "Officers and-NSC policy staff assigned to listen and memorialize the conversation in written form as the conversation takes place. A number of factors can affect the accuracy of the record, including poor telecommunications connections and variations in accent and/or interpretation. The word "inaudible" is used to indicate portions of a conversation that the notetaker was unable to hear.

This level of technology employed at the highest levels across the pond is staggering, I dread to think what means they use to record a conversation between (our) dear Boris and (his) Queen?! :D
