LILONGWE (MaraviPost)-Malawi Parliament has embarked on digitalizing Hansard script transcription through training editors on the use of new transcription machines with the aim of fastening parliamentary documents.

Speaker of Parliament, Catherine Gotan Hara said this on Monday, October 23, 2022 during the launch of 10th biennial Commonwealth Harsard editors Association Africa Region (CHEA-AR).

The training runs from October 23 to 29, 2022 with the delegation of 18 SADC member states.

Hara said Parliament received a donation of transcription machines from United Nations Development Program (UNDP).

She said currently Parliament only have 16 editors which are not enough and they are hoping to recruit soon.

Malawi Speaker said Parliament has been lacking behind in terms of processing the documents using the analogue which was so slow and very tiresome to the Hansard officers.

On her part Chairperson for CHEA-AR, Gladys Ndeda said Hansard needs quality work since the documents might be use globally in times of reference in global meetings.

The 8 days conference is themed at Hansard transcription trends amidst COVID-19 pandemic and global challenges.
