Several times during the presentation, i noticed that the transcript / closed captioning was not entirely accurate with what the presenter was saying. This leads to learning incorrect terminology and information. I hope that in the future, the presenter will be more accurate with his pronunciation of terms so that the transcript is more correct. Thanks.
