    Important: Those who purchase a seat in advance may be able to pay an "early bird" or cheaper price, while those who confirm participation later or last minute, may likely have to pay a higher fee.

    booking on 3 seminarsJan 24

    Hi, I just wanted to check that I was booked on the 3 seminars: Express Scribe, You Tube Transcription and Audacity - re voiceover software. It's just that when I booked they gave reference numbers and the title was something about translating contracts etc, which seemed strange?
