Hi Karl,

Thanks so much. That is how I was thinking of approaching it, with
headings, so that a screen reader user could list them and go to a
particular one. Oh and this transcript will be made accessible for people
with all disabilities, but it was the screen reader part that I was trying
to work out-and headings are great!

Thanks again, appreciate it!

Cheers

Lisa
