Talking to people about telephoning and about
using the pay telephone

----------------------------------------------------

Reporter: I'm busy talking to people about telephoning and about
using the pay telephone.
Excuse me, sir. Excuse me, would you mind telling me about using
the pay telephone?

Reporter: Well, you know how to use a phone right. <<< (The reporter is saying these words directly to the audience.)

What does "right" mean in this sentence?

Does it mean "correctly"or does it mean"Is that right"?


Thank you

The sentence is written as if "right" means "correctly". If "right" is supposed to mean "is that right?", it should be written like this:

Well, you know how to use a phone, right?

It seems very likely that this is the intended meaning and the transcription has not been punctuated correctly. One would need to hear the spoken intonation to be 100% sure.

There are some typos in the original text.

I think "Well, you know how to use a phone, right?" is correct.

If you have the audio file available, you could upload it to another file-sharing website, and I can listen to it there, if you wish.

Thank you so much, GPY

Yes, I think it must be as we said, i.e. "..., right?".
