    Sorry if I posted in the wrong forum

    I'm a Vietnamese student and I'm gonna hold a presentation for my class. I intend to display a short movie clip inside a slide. Here's the link: YouTube - How to handle an off-topic conversation
    It's about how to handle an off-topic conversation in a meeting.
    The problem is, my classmates' listening skill is not very good. So I want to add subtitle to this clip. I have noted the text script, but I'm not sure they're totally right. (My classmates and I are non-native English speakers ).
    Would you please correct any mistakes in the following textscript ?
    Thanks in advance.
    "???" means words that I couldn't hear clearly.
    IF YOU TURN THE PAGE you can see the car numbers for THE LAST SIX MONTHS
    ??? PIE CHART SO YOU CAN GET A CLEAR idea about which areas are giving us THE MOST PROBLEM
    THANKS Chris IT REALLY HELPS
    YOU KNOW, NOT TO change THE SUBJECT but WHAT I'M THINKING ABOUT IT
    DID ANYONE EVER get a hold of IT about getting the horrible Projector fixed ?
    I DIDN'T CALL anybody. DID YOU ?
    NO, I THOUGHT YOU 'RE GOING TO
    You know I'm gonna need that NEXT WEEK
    I MEAN, WHAT OTHER OPTIONs CAN I rent one or what ?
    there're GONNA BE TIMEs IN A MEETING WHEN SOMEBODY JUMPs IN WITH AN IDEA OR COMMENT THAT THREATS TO TAKE THINGS OFF TRACK
    AND WHile YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE PEOPLE KNOW YOU THINK THE IDEA IS IMPORTANT. YOU DON'T WANT TO DEAL WITH OTHER FOCUS ON THE MEETING
    ONE OF THE BEST WAY TO DO THAT IS TO USE A "PARTKING LOT"
    BASICALLY THAT 'S JUST A SHEET OF PAPER OR A SPACE ON THE WHITEBOARD.
    YOU CAN QUICKLY CAPTURE THOSE IDEAS FOR FOLLOW-UP AT A MORE APPROPRIATE TIME
    HANG ON HANG ON
    THAT'S STH WE NEED TO CHECK ON
    I DON'T WANT TO GET OFF TRACK HERE
    LET ME JUST MAKE A QUICK NOTE ON THAT
    AND YOU AND I CAN TALK OFFLINE ABOUT IT AFTER THE MEETING
    SURE, IT WORKS FOR ME
    JUST TO MAKE SURE THEY'RE AVAILABLE
    OH, I UNDERSTAND
    NOW, BACK TO THE ???
    I THINK IT'S TELLLING THAT 40 % OF THE PROBLEM'S COMING FROM THE INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMER
