However many things in webpages are things which have been written down!

This is specifically a transcript of some speech -- not a transcript of
commands typed at a computer prompt, nor an exam transcript, nor any
other kind of transcript.

So focusing on the thing being transcribed, the speech, seems more
sensible; that it has been written down is something which will be
readily apparent to anybody reading it!
