2.6 USE OF TRANSCRIPTS OF RECORDINGS You are about to hear recorded conversations. These recorded conversations are proper evidence and you may consider them just as any other evidence. You are also being furnished transcripts of the recorded conversations. The recordings are the evidence and the transcripts are provided to you only as a guide to help you follow as you listen to the recordings. The transcripts are not evidence of what was actually said or who said it. If you notice any difference between what you hear on the recordings and what you read in the transcripts, you must rely on what you hear, not what you read. NOTE TO JUDGE: This instruction is not intended to apply to a recording of a conversation in any language other than English. In case of disputed transcripts, see Martinez v. State, 761 So. 2d 1074 (Fla. 2000).
