So my transcription is done! …..well almost. Half an interview to go then I can start analyzing the results. Transcribing is quite a skill. I admittedly looked into transcription services at one point (one night when my fingers and wrists just couldn’t take it anymore). Some were charging up to $1.00 per minute…. this didn’t seem unreasonable given the amount of time it takes to actually type everything out. I must say my keyboarding skills have improved dramatically though.
Anyway, it’s been quite the experience and because of the transcribing process I’ve already listened to and analyzed each interview thoroughly. Had I outsourced I wouldn’t have gotten an intimate look into each so the analysis should go quite smoothly.
Looking forward to getting back to writing. That next deadline will be here in no time!
