Cothroman is duilgheadasan le bhith a’ cruinneachadh nan naidheachdan

Gaelic Gàidhlig

[Karen Elder] Niste, ‘s iomadh rud a dh’atharraich bho nochd an Coròna-bhìoras an toiseach – mar a tha sinne mar luchd-naidheachd a’ cruinneachadh agus ag aithris nan naidheachdan nam measg. ‘S ann air am fòn air an no tro rudan an leithid Zoom a thèid a’ chuid as motha dha na h-agallamhan a bhios sinne a’ dèanamh a-niste air an cumail. Ach tha lagachadh air tighinn air bacaidhean a’ Choròna-bhìoras, saoil an atharraich na dòighean-obraich againn uair eile. Tha an aithris-sa aig Nicole Weber.

[Nicole Weber] Nuair a thòisich mise an obair seo, fhuair mi trèanadh air camarathan agus a bhith a’ dèanamh agallamhan mar seo, a’ coinneachadh ri daoine leis a’ chamara agam agus a’ clàradh agallamhan le microphone. Ach an uair sin thòisich am pandemic agus le bacaidhean-siubhail agus casg air a bhith a’ tadhal air dachaighean dhaoine, bha latha a’ chamara gu ìre mhòr seachad.

[Nicole Weber] ‘S ann mar sin a fhuair Calum Macleòid eòlas air an obair.

[Calum Macleòid] Tha e doirbh ceangal a dhèanamh thairis air Zoom san aon dòigh nam biodh tu an làthair, còmhla ri cuideigin, ach cuideachd tha e a’ toirt cothroman dhut. Tha mi air agallamhan Zoom a dhèanamh còmhla ri daoine anns na Stàitean, ann an Astràilia, ann an Canada, air feadh an t-saoghail, agus cha b’ urrainn dhomh sin a dhèanamh.

[Nicole Weber] Tron a’ phandemic, tha an dòigh anns a bheil sinn air a bhith a’ cruinneachadh nan naidheachdan air a bhith gu tur eadar-dhealaichte. Ach cha b’ e seo a’ chiad turas a thug innealan agus teicneòlas buaidh air na naidheachdan.

[Pàdraig MacAmhlaigh] Tha teicneòlas air cruth atharrachadh a thoirt air an dòigh 's a tha seirbheis naidheachd ag obrachadh. An-diugh tha e, mar a tha mi fhìn ’s tu fhèin a’ bruidhinn an-dràsta, tha sinn a’ bruidhinn bho na dachaighean againn agus cha bhiodh sin comasach nuair a thòisich mise bho chionn dà fhichead bliadhna ’s a chòrr. Dh’fheumadh tu a bhith a-staigh ann an stiùideo airson a bhith a dhol an sàs ann an obair telebhisean no gu dearbh airson a dhol an sàs ann an obair rèidio. Ach an-diugh tha a h-uile càil, tha fònaichean-làimhe, faodaidh tu sin a chleachdadh airson craoladh den a h-uile seòrsa. Agus sin an t-atharrachadh as motha sin a th’ aig teicneòlas.

[Nicole Weber] Airson cuid eile a tha ag obair sna meadhanan, tha an obair air a bhith nas duilghe, gu h-àraidh nuair a tha iad a’ bruidhinn ri daoine mu rudan pearsanta.

[Mìcheal Iain Bochanan] Ma choinnicheas tu ri cuideigin, faodaidh tu bruidhinn riutha tòrr mòr nas pearsanta agus faodaidh tu, ’s e còmhradh ceart a th’ agad agus chan urrainn dhut, anns a’ mhòr chuid de dh’eisimpleirean co-dhiù, chan urrainn dhut sin a dhèanamh cho math air Zoom no air coimpiutairean. So sin pàirt de na duilgheadasan tha mise a’ mothachadh co-dhiù.

[Nicole Weber] Is e beachd an luchd-amharc as cudromaiche ge-tà agus chan eil an saoghal ùr air còrdadh ri cuid dhiubh sin.

[Natalie Chamshron] Chan eil mi a’ smaointinn gu bheil iad cho math ri dìreach a bhith a’ bruidhinn aghaidh ri aghaidh so tha thu a’ tuigsinn carson a tha iad ga dhèanamh agus tha sin ceart gu leòr is tha mi toilichte gu bheil iad fhathast ann ach chan eil mi a’ smaointinn gu bheil iad cho math ’s a ’s urrainn dhaibh a bhith.

[Nicole Weber] Tha i a’ coimhead air adhart ri lagachadh anns na riaghailtean, a’ leigeas le luchd-naidheachd barrachd farsaingeachd de naidheachdan a dhèanamh a-rithist. Ach is iongantach mura bi Zoom fhathast mar phàirt de shaoghal nan naidheachdan fiù ’s nuair nach bi guth air Covid tuilleadh. Nicole Weber, BBC An Là.

 

 

Opportunities and woes with gathering news

English Beurla

[Karen Elder] Now, many things have changed since the Coronavirus first appeared – including how we as reporters collect and report on the news. Most of the reports that we make are now kept on the phone or things like Zoom. But the Coronavirus restrictions have been eased, I wonder if our working ways will change once more. Nicole Weber has this report.

[Nicole Weber] When I started this job, I got training on cameras and doing interviews like this, meeting people with my camera and recording interviews with a microphone. But then the pandemic started and with travel restrictions and prevention on visiting people’s houses, the day of the camera was to a large extent over.

[Nicole Weber] That’s how Calum MacLeod learnt about the work.

[Calum MacLeod] It’s difficult to make connections over zoom in the same way as if you were in their presence, together with someone, but it also gives you opportunities. I have done Zoom interviews with people in the States, in Australia, Canada, across the world, and I couldn’t do that.

[Nicole Weber] Throughout the pandemic, the way that we have been gathering the news has been completely different. But this is not the first time that machines and technology affected the news.

[Patrick MacAulay] Technology has changed the shape of how the news service works. Today how me and you are speaking now, we are speaking from our homes and that wouldn’t have been possible when I started over forty years ago. You would have to be inside in the studio to be involved in television work or even to be involved in radio work. But today everything, there are mobile phones, you can use that to record everything. And that’s the biggest change that technology has.

[Nicole Weber] For some others who work in the media, the work has been harder, especially when they are speaking to people about personal things.

[Michel Iain Buchanan] If you meet someone, you can speak to them a lot more personally and you can, it’s a proper conversation that you have and you can’t, in the majority of examples anyway, you can’t do that so well on Zoom or on computers. So that’s part of the difficulties that I notice anyway.

[Nicole Weber] The opinion of the viewers is the most important though and they have not all liked the new world.

[Natalie Cameron] I don’t think they are as good as just speaking face to face so you understand why they do it and that’s ok and I’m happy that they’re still there but I don’t think they’re as good as they could be.

[Nicole Weber] She is looking forward to easing of restrictions that will allow reporters to do a wider range of news again. But it would be amazing if Zoom would be a part of the news world even when there is no longer talk of Covid. Nicole Weber, BBC An Là.
