Interview Transcription Services

IT’S ALL ABOUT ACCURACY

You need an accurate transcript. Thinking of using an interview transcription service or perhaps doing it yourself? Read our quick guide below on your options.

ACCURATE INTERVIEW TRANSCRIPTS

Accurate interview transcripts for research are critical for obtaining meaningful intelligence from data. To get your recording into a suitable transcript,​ you have two options to consider.

The first option is to transcribe the recordings yourself. While this seems reasonable and saves money,​ is usually not viable if you require the information urgently,​ or are not very patient. Transcription requires a lot of time. It can take an entire day to transcribe interviews with 60 minutes of recording. For professional transcribers,​ with a typing speed of 100 words or more a minute,​ it still takes about 4 times more time to transcribe the actual length of the recording. For most users,​ this amount of time is not doable,​ especially for many professionals. Time is of the essence in many cases. For example,​ a journalist in media needs their interviews transcribed for breaking news,​ a university academic or business researcher requires a correct analysis for a key finding or a lawyer or medical practitioner needs the perfect transcript for a pending decision or the outcome of a case.

In these cases,​ the second option is to outsource recordings to a reliable transcription service. This option involves the choice to outsource your recordings to one of the more recent AI machine speech to text services or to use a more reliable human transcription service. Both have their benefits and disadvantages when it comes to providing interview transcription services and in summary,​ it can be concluded that despite all advances with AI and machine transcription,​ a consistently high level of accuracy is still assured by using a reputable human transcription service.

INTERVIEW TRANSCRIPT FORMAT

Whichever option you choose to transcribe your recordings,​ ensure your transcript is produced with the following options in mind:

  • An interview transcript with very little changed. This transcript will be a document that accurately represents each speaker’s words,​ conversational quality,​ and speech patterns. All that will be left out will be things that slow the researcher down: filler words like “er,​” “um,​” “and then,​” “you know,​” and other redundant false starts and superfluous comments like “how interesting” or “really?” or “wow!” which the interviewer makes only to show that he is listening.
  • An interview transcript that is easy to read and understand,​ with the correct spelling of words,​ correct spelling of place names,​ people’s names,​ and brand names. This will provide ready-to-be-used material for a project,​ for a thesis,​ for a book,​ for the next day’s newspapers.
  • An interview transcript that is complete,​ including all the words and transcribable sounds in their order of occurrence.
